If I remember correctly, this is an old "bug" (google this newsgroup to 
find the related threads). If you have only one column to display, you 
should use *ColumnForm* (or *Column* in version 6) rather than 
*TableForm*. For instance,

lst = {23, 24, 25, 26};
(* 5.2 and below *)
ColumnForm[Join[{"My List"}, lst]]
(* 6.0 only *)
Column[Join[{"My List"}, lst]]

Jean-Marc
