Default Word 2012: Change column width changes table width

I have a table (in a doc that I think came from an old 2003 doc) where when I try to drag to shrink the column widths, the whole table width is increased, so that the table right edge falls outside the page.



I cannot understand this behavior. Is it as it should be?

This behavior makes working with the table totally impossible.

Can you attach a document to a post with a representative table (delete anything sensitive)? You do this via the paperclip symbol on the 'Go Advanced' tab.
