### What is wrong with this simple tabularx in revtex4 ?

I'm experiencing a major error with this simple code (tabularx with a color, under the revtex4 class), and I don't understand what is happening here :

1. \RequirePackage[l2tabu,orthodox]{nag}
2. \documentclass[11pt]{revtex4}
3. \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
4. \usepackage{graphicx}
5. \usepackage[dvipsnames,table]{xcolor}
6. \usepackage{tabularx}
7.
8. \begin{document}
9.
10. \section{Introduction}
11.
12. A simple table :
13. \begin{table}
14. \renewcommand{\arraystretch}{1.5}
15. \begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{|X|X|X|X|X|}
16. \hline
17. \rowcolor[gray]{0.95}
18. \multicolumn{5}{|c|}{\textbf{\textsf{Title}}}
19. \\ \hline
20. \multicolumn{1}{|>{\centering}p{6.5em}|}{\textsf{word 1}}
21. & \multicolumn{1}{>{\centering}p{6.5em}|}{\textsf{word 2}}
22. & \multicolumn{1}{>{\centering}p{6.5em}|}{\textsf{word 3}}
23. & \multicolumn{1}{>{\centering}p{6.5em}|}{\textsf{word 4}}
24. & \multicolumn{1}{>{\centering}p{6.5em}|}{\textsf{word 5}}
25. \\ \hline
26. & & & &
27. \\
28. & & & &
29. \\
30. & & & &
31. \\ \hline
32. \end{tabularx}
33. \end{table}
34.
35. \end{document}

The same tabularx is working great with all the other classes I tested (article, book, etc). So what is wrong with this code ?

Hi Cham,

again, you made a fantastic minimal example, so it's easy to work with it.

That's an issue with revtex4 that I consider as a bug. It is fixed with revtex4-1. Is that ok for you, or would you like to fix it with revtex4?

I didn't tried revtex4-1 with this table yet. How to fix it for revtex4 ?

Weird bug !

EDIT : Works much better with revtex4-1.
