The data grid has to keep track of the total height of the data in a data
grid. For a data grid table or a data grid form with a fixed row height this
is just the row height * the number of records in the table. For data grid
form with variable row heights the total height is cached. This cache is
updated when you add/remove rows. If you use SetDataOfIndex to add a row to
a data grid form with variable row heights then the cached height would not
be correct.

I just looked at the code again and there are other operations that occur
when adding a row to a data grid such as storing of the sequence for the
index. So I would recommend that you always use AddData to add rows to the
data grid.
