I've discovered a problem with the EDITROWPLUGIN when using spreadsheet calculations in the select field. I've often created a list of items using a hidden table, then set them into a variable. Then in the select field of the plugin I would use the get command to get the list of items. See below for a sample setup.

| item1 |
| item2 |
| item3 |
| %CALC{$SET(mylist, $LIST($ABOVE()))}% |

 %EDITTABLE{ format = "|select, 1, %CALC{$GET(mylist)}%|" }%
| item1 |

The %CALC{$GET(mylist)}% doesn't convert properly and breaks the table. Would appreciate if this could be fixed as this technique is heavily used at our site.

I removed the beforeCommonTagsHandler that was causing the issue, but I'm slightly nervous that it was there for a reason. However all my testcases pass, so.....
