SSRS: Black Box When Exporting to PDF with Hidden Column

Had a funny with SQL Server Reporting Services where I had a column in a table being hidden based on an expression. That was all fine, the issue was when the column was hidden and the report was exported to PDF, there was a solid black box being shown - great!

The table had a border and all inner borders were also set. I removed all the table borders and instead applied the borders to the textboxes in each cell.

Problem solved!

This has apparently been addressed in RS2005.
