Subject: DOCBOOK: Problem with tables when attempting to create dvi

I encounter the following problem when trying to create a dvi-file: The
first cell in the first row is always empty, and tex complains about a
misplaced \omit:

This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (Web2C 7.3)
JadeTeX 1998/10/12: 2.3
Elements will be labelled

(@2199.aux) (/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/base/ts1cmr.fd)
! Misplaced \omit.
\multispan ->\omit 
l.99 }
Overfull \hbox (2.4pt too wide) in alignment at lines 77--411
[] [] [] [] [] 

Underfull \vbox (badness 10000) detected at line 411
[1] (@2199.aux) )
(see the transcript file for additional information)
Output written on @2199.dvi (1 page, 1428 bytes).
Transcript written on @2199.log.

I assume this is not an error of mine, as it also happens when I use the
example table from the docbook book, i.e.:

<!DOCTYPE table PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook V3.1//EN">
<table frame=all><title>Sample Table</title>
<tgroup cols=5 align=left colsep=1 rowsep=1>
<colspec colname=c1>
<colspec colname=c2>
<colspec colname=c3>
<colspec colnum=5 colname=c5>
<spanspec spanname=hspan namest=c1 nameend=c2 align=center>
<spanspec spanname=bspan namest=c2 nameend=c3 align=center>
  <entry spanname=hspan>Horizontal Span</entry>
  <entry morerows=1 valign=middle><para>  <!-- Pernicous Mixed Content
  Vertical Span</para></entry>
  <entry spanname=bspan morerows=1 valign=bottom>Span Both</entry>
