Padding bug

Padding isn't working correctly on table cells. In the attached PDF you can see that the 1st and 3rd cells in the table heading are not properly padded. I downloaded and installed the release to see if that would fix it and it didn't. I could swear I had this problem before and it had been fixed in a hot fix.
