I have a password-protected excel file created with MS Office of MacOS. When trying to open it with LibreOffice, it opens a "Text Import" prompt and tries to import gibberish (encrypted stuff I presume). It doesn't ask me to enter my password.

Can you remove the password with MSO on your Mac and than open and protect the file in LibO?

Sounds like a good candidate for a bug report. Can you reproduce the bug by creating a new, sanitized file? (we don't want to ask you to put any sensitive information up on bugzilla)
