My PhD lab is still paying me post-graduation-Should my CV say postdoc?

I graduated with a biochem PhD a month or so ago. As is common practice at my institution - my thesis advisor offered me a few months of additional funding to finish up some papers while I hunt for industry jobs. Formally, I now have a post-doc appointment and salary, but I'm not actually taking on any new projects or doing any new science, nor do I have funding to stay her for more than another month or two. How should this look on my resume? I'm only applying to industry positions, not to academic positions or proper post-docs.

Currently, my CV has my PhD listed under education (with a date in the recent past), and under experience, 'Graduate Researcher' listed as '2008-current.' On the one hand, I want it to be clear that I'm not currently unemployed; on the other hand, it seems odd to list a new postdoc position...
