I should note that this happens when the border reaches a certain
width, probably when it goes outside the area around the frame that is
actually repainted. So I really do think the table should never paint
outside its frame. Is it OK if I try to implement the offset thing
(and also at the same time finally get around to setting the cliprect
properly, I think I did try early on with using the PoLine but it
wasn't working, I'll try again).

If it is OK, then my old question from the mid-week mini report is
still valid; How can I be notified of style changes? Since the table
needs to have this offset correctly set at all times, it needs to be
notified of the following style changes, whether they came as a result
of a change in a parent style or as a change in the locally stored
style used for direct formatting:

1) Table top border changes.
2) Table left border changes.
3) Cell top border changes (on cells in row 0)
4) Cell left border changes (on cells in col 0)
