It worked insofar as a Tag property/variable was added to the global
_GridView_Cell class -- otherwise you would have gotten a runtime error
when accessing it.

The problem is found in the gb.gui.base source code for GridView:
_GridView_Cell is not a permanent object that lives inside the GridView
and stores the data associated to a cell. It is only a temporary object
that is created on-the-fly as a proxy to make modifications to the
real internal data structures of the GridView. Whatever data you store
in a _GridView_Cell object is wasted. The class we want to change is
called _GridView_Data. That's the permanent data storage for a cell.

The attached project now works. But it uses some more implementation
details of the GridView, which may change in a future Gambas and break
your code relying on them without warning. Use at your risk!
