Cell x changed from <empty> to x

Out of nowhere, and for no reason I can think of, suddenly Calc is putting some cells in a red outline; hovering the mouse over them shows a popup stating "Cell x (the cell in question) changed from <empty> to x (whatever I've put in the cell)."

I've saved, closed and reopened, and I still get the red outlined border with the popups, but it's not in all the areas it was. Any idea what this is?

You have Track Changes feature activated. See menu Edit->Track Changes. Use Manage Changes to accept those that you need; and disable recording changes.
