below you'll find a testcase for the table problems with the new
JadeTeX/old OpenJade combo. The versions are:
JadeTeX 3.3
OpenJade 1.3
OpenSP 1.3.4
running on WinNT, CygWin 1.1.6

The problem goes away if I switch back to the old jadetex.fmt created with
JadeTeX 2.20.

This is the error I get (there are several screens full of that until TeX
gives up):

! Undefined control sequence.
\endTableCell #1->\ifnum \NRowsSpanned
                                       >1\endJadeRowSpan \fi \rule [-...

! Missing number, treated as zero.

and so on.

A chopped-down testcase that produces this error looks like this (I hope my
email prog does not scramble it; I also sent this file as an attachment in
a private mail to Adam; please shout if anyone else needs it)
