Default Word 2007 tables - dragging row in a table seems to damage table

I had drawn a table (two columns by 8 rows) and populated each cell. I then
decided to re-order the rows by dragging them.

Each time I dragged a row, a thicker boundary line appeared around the row I
dragged. Also the table now behaved as if it was three tables - the rows
prior to where the new row went in, the new row and the rows afterward.

After dragging several rows, the table is now a mess, and I cannot make it
behave as a single table again. How can re-join the rows into a single table?

I tried converting to text and back in but because Some of the cells have
multiple lines in them, the convert back from text to table format messed up
the table.

There must be an easier way! HELP!

Not sure what else I can add. Obviously something different about my case....

I'm using Word 2007; I used the table draw feature to create it (you know,
the one where lots of small boxes repreeenting each cell and you expand or
contract the size to suit); also I later set the cells to auto-size to
contents.

I've never had this happen before in Word 2003, I've only migrated to 2007
in february. Also this was the first time I've used the table draw feature .
