I have just tested the described behavior however everything works fine by my side. In case you have predefined the ItemTemplate of GridViewComboBox column the CheckBox should be correctly displayed. Using the approach demonstrated in the following online help article "GridViewComboBox column" you may use any control you need.
Will you please try this one and let me know what happens?
