No, it's not a bug. It sounds like you're using the 'xhtml' theme, which 
is designed to automatically lay your forms out using table. For your 
use case, you'll need to use the 'simple' theme instead.

Be aware that you'll need to take care of showing field labels, error 
messages, etc. yourself when using the 'simple' theme.
