[texhax] A strange behaviour with tabular and makeindex

This minimal example behaves badly on my TeX system:
(pdflatex, 2005 Mac version from Gerben Wierda)

  \begin{tabular}{ p{30mm} p{32mm} p{28mm} }%
  satellite & car crash & \index{rocket}rocket \\

The three items are not aligned; the "rocket" is
one line below the other two items.

The behaviour is ok if \makeindex is taken out,
or if the last p{28mm} is changed to a "l".

Is this the case in other TeX systems as well?
