Report formatting: two CanGrow fields don't line up

I have a report with lots of fields crammed into it.

On line two I have txtDescription and txtDueDate, both height 0 and CanGrow=Yes.

But if txtDescription has data and txtDueDate also has data, txtDescription takes up the 2nd line on the report and pushes down txtDueDate to the third line.

So in the designer, they look like this :

_________________________________  ___________

But on the report, it's like this:

This is the description of my Work Item
                                                              05/23/2008

But I'd like it to look like this:

This is the description of my Work Item  05/23/2008

Is that possible, either with a simple solution or do I need a complex solution for this simple problem?
