I have Word 2000. I've tried to repeat your experiment, and I get the
same, unexpected result using the Table > Properties dialog box.
However, when I select a specific, eligible row, and use the Heading
Rows Repeat command in that menu, I can assign that attribute to the
selected row.

Perhaps the Table > Properties dialog box is outsmarting us somehow --
perhaps because the rows have different numbers of cells.

Finally, I assume you're not trying to skip a row. The rows designated
as repeating must start at row 1 and be contiguous. IOW you can't have
row 1 and row 3 repeat, but not row 2.
