[texhax] Removing vertical space in list in table

Hi everyone,

I'm writing a table, and used the compactenum environment provided by the
paralist package. Unfortunately, the results are slightly dissatisfactory,
as you can see from the pdf output. There's some vertical space between the
beginning of the line and that of the compactenum. Any idea how to get rid
of that space? I tried \setlength{pltopsep}{0mm} but that didn't work. Hmmm.

Thanks!

Zac
