Please try this:  Make the last 4 statements of that function, around
line 450:

    me->cells[me->ncells + colspan].pos = -1; /* not yet used */
    me->cells[me->ncells + colspan].alignment = HT_ALIGN_NONE;
    return (me->ncells - 1);

(the second of those 4 line is new).

(I say "please try", since you have that machinery already geared up...)
