DataGridView keeps making headers bold when GroupBox is bold?

I have 2 sets of GroupBoxes with a DataGridView in each one of them on a Windows Form. I have one set to where the DGV column headers are NOT bold regardless is the GB is bold or not.

For some reason I can't get the other one to act the same way.

In design mode, I basically make the GB bold, then, for the DGV, I set the "bold" property to False for the "ColumnHeadersDefaultCellStype", "DefaultCellStyle" and "RowHeadersDefaultCellStyle". Once that's done, I go back and set the GB's "bold" property to False. This still isn't working and I have no idea what else to do.

Inheriting associative styles from the parent container is the expected behaviour, so it is doing what it is supposed to do.

The simplest way to fix it would be to add a Panel control the the GB and put the DataGridView in that, thus changing the parent container from the GB to the Panel.  You can then switch off bold for the Panel and that should reflect in the DataGridView.
