1. Open the attached file table_bugs.odt. It has a main grid (and some cells 
are subdivided into smaller cells).
2. Try to place the text cursor in a white cell in the first row of the main 
grid by simply clicking in the cell.

Sometimes it works, but often the mouse cursor finds some phantom row border 
and goes into drag mode instead. This is very annoying. If there are many such 
phantom row borders, it can be really hard to get into a cell using the mouse.

The phantom row borders come from other cells in the same line of the main 
grid, that are subdivided. Somehow those subdivisions affect other cells.

The phantom row borders should be ignored, since they are so annoying. The 
heights of those rows can be adjusted where the rows actually exist, not 
elsewhere. That is enough.

(By the way, the simple black-rectangle-SVGs in the left column are not 
rendered, while the same SVGs with other size in the top row are redered 
correctly (although both are printed correctly). But broken SVG embedding is 
another bug that someone else already reported.)

MRU->AMA: open attached document and hover with the mouse cursor across cell B1
-> see that you very often get the cursor for "changing row height".

Also note that this is only about row borders. The other case, column borders 
works as expected. They can only be dragged where they actually exist, so they 
do not give phantom behaviour.
