Upgrade from 2.5.2003 to 2.5.2009 causes display issues

    I just updated our Spread for Windows Forms control to v 2.5.2009, and now I'm seeing some display issues in a spreadsheet we are using.  It is an excel sheet that I am displaying using the OpenExcel method.  With the new version, any cell with text in it that goes outside of the cell now displays as a grey cell with no text in it.  Cells display fine, as long as the text in the cell is within the cell's borders.  AllowEditOverflow and AllowCellOverflow are both set to true.  Again, this displayed fine in the 2.5.2003 version of the control.  Any ideas?

    Quick update to this issue:  If i turn AllowCellOverflow to false, the cells display text, but cut the text off at the cell border.  No grey cells display with this property set to False.
