Possible bug in V8: Grid with TextCell


Please, take a look at the following image showing a cell with text and
graphics side by side:

Below I show the basic template involved. It used to work in V6 and V7. I
was disappointed to see that this is not the case anymore in V8 (Trial
version).

text = StringJoin@Table["bla, ", {180}];

textCell = TextCell[text, "Text", FontFamily -> "Times",
TextJustification->1];

graphics = Framed@Graphics[{}];

Grid[{{textCell, graphics}},
 Alignment -> Top]

Is it possible to achieve the older result in V8? Any workaround?
