Remember that all lengths have .conditionality, that the width of a
table border is a length, and the default conditionality is
"discard". What you are seeing is what would be expected.

Try setting the .conditionality property of your table border width
to "retain" so that the border width isn't discarded at the end of a
reference area.

I hope this helps.
