Pretty easy to reproduce this bug:

sheet.setColumnWidth((short)0, (short)40000);
assertEquals((short)40000, sheet.getColumnWidth((short)0));

Excel column widths are 16 bit unsigned values, but POI was using java shorts
for that purpose.  To fix this bug (svn r696075 / r696084), several methods
with this problem have been deprecated and replaced with versions that use

There is a work-around to java's lack of 16-bit unsigned shorts.  Simply
convert (signed) shorts to ints by ANDing with 2^^16-1.  For example:

int width = sheet.getColumnWidth((short)0) & 0xFFFF;

However, once you have this bug-fix, the same code can be written:

int width = sheet.getColumnWidth(0);
