Have you tried anchoring the tables in their own pgfs, either in column, 
or across all columns and sideheads and with the .25 indent? (I don't 
know why your problem is occurring, but one of these might at least work 
around it. If you use the negative space above/below trick, you don't 
end up with any unwanted white space.)
