Perhaps is better to stress that the 'wrong behavior' comes from
TDBGrid's implementation which always shows up an empty row, even if the
record count = 0 (zero).

Other, newer, implementations of data-aware grids display an empty panel
with a message in center (<No data to display> in the case of
DevExpress's TcxGrid).
