Well I was wrong, misread my own code...
HText_endStblTR only ends the current row, it is not an HText_cancelStbl.

The client is supposed to show TFOOT rows not where they occur in the
input document but as a footer that may be repeated; and similar for
THEAD.  I think I skipped dealing with them completely because we
aren't doing anything of that sort.

But TRST isn't goin to make things worse, so that isn't really a good reason
for anything.

And having said that, nobody has to listen to me, not even myself...

New patch, temporarily available under

* fixes an invalid memory problem from previous patch
* adds alignment inheritance from COLGROUP / COL / THEAD / TFOOT / TBODY.
