I see now that the issue is caused by my incorrect reading of "used height",
since this is the height "after" min-height is applied, and so my suggested
change is indeed wrong.

But the current phrasing of the condition doesn't allow to distinguish the
case when the height "before" min-height is applied (the computed height?)
is equal to min-height. Is this the case that I wanted to add, since in this
case the min-height is not in effect, and it is currently excluded.
