[reportlab-users] Is borderPadding supposed to do this?

Trying this program:

from reportlab.platypus import SimpleDocTemplate, Paragraph
from reportlab.lib.styles import ParagraphStyle

def go():
doc = SimpleDocTemplate("phello.pdf")
style =
p = Paragraph('This is a paragraph', style)
p = Paragraph('This is the second paragraph', style)


I expected to see two largish paragraphs in ugly colours, with big padding,
one below the other.

What I got was the second paragraph drawn over the first one.
