My intention was to have relief-like three-dimensional vertical and 
horizontal lines between the fields - as part of the visual design. This 
is achieved by immediately adjacent fields with the threeD property set 
to true.
This is why I then stumbled across the problem that with borderwidth 2 
on WindowsXP you suddenly get transparent gaps between the fields.

Setting the shadow to true (with shadowoffset 0) does not make any 
difference here. And then, when I turn the threeD property off - 
irrespective of whether shadow is true or not - the transparent gap 
between the immediate adjacent fields indeed vanishes and you get a 
default black border around the field (unless you specify a different 
color), but the intended relief-like lines between the fields are not 
there - as you need threeD for that.

This is on WindowsXP Service Pack 2

Tuviah Snyder has confirmed  Bugzilla 2508 in the meantime
