Table footer not appearing with reno theme.

In the forum thread
Footer not appearing
it was identified that sometimes a footer would not appear at the bottom of a table. I have an instance of this problem also.
However using the much sexier “runo” then my table does not show the footer initially.
The table is on a SplitPanel which is inside an application sub-Window
The footer does appear until I trigger one of the following:

  • Resort the table by selecting on of the columns.
  • Reload the table contents using a a result of of user interaction.
    When using the Reindeer theme (ie. adding “?theme=reindeer” to the url) I do not have then problem.
    Does anyone have any solution/work around/hints ?
