I'm not sure what the indended behavior is, only that filled and No Filled cells don't align.

I suppose the converse of my summary could be true:
Perhaps No Fill should be removing one more row of pixels at the top edge of a cell. That would also fix this problem,

I can confirm with LO 4.3.5, win7.

This also exists in excel, so probably not a bug. Leaving unconfirmed.

Hi Marc,

I'm going to go ahead and push this to NEW - it does indeed seem a little strange (even if Excel behaves the same). 

That being said:
Minor - not going to prevent high quality work at all;
Lowest - not going to impact a lot of users at all, I can't imagine many case scenarios where this would actually be an issue. Also, Excel behaving the same way gives some weight to the "users don't care" or "users don't notice" or "users have learned to work around it" - all of which contribute to my assessment that this is a really minor issue.

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
