This may be a bug, but it seems more like something that doesn't work in 
a sensible way.

Here are some phenomena that I see, which may be useful to you:

1. When you first create a table, you create a group of frames. You 
cannot assign a Line color (the secret sauce of making borders of any 
frame show), so you cannot make the borders show.

2. If you ungroup the table, you can assign a color (life is good!)

3. If you then select an individual frame, you have entered mondo 
bizarro, in which the interaction of the internal borders with each 
other becomes unexpected (change color or line style of one cell, for 

4. There is some possibility of resurrection by selecting all the cells, 
then grouping and ungrouping. YMMV, but worth a try.

So, it's probably worth a bug report, but this leads to 3 questions: a) 
what is supposed to happen? b) what is going wrong? and c) what would be 
a desirable behavior?
