[CSS21] error in table row heights

Gérard Talbot recently pointed me at this section, which seems to have an error in it:

http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/tables.html#height-layout
  # The height of a 'table-row' element's box is calculated once the user agent
  # has all the cells in the row available: it is the maximum of the row's computed
  # 'height', the computed 'height' of each cell in the row, and the minimum height
  # (MIN) required by the cells. A 'height' value of 'auto' for a 'table-row' means
  # the row height used for layout is MIN. MIN depends on cell box heights and cell
  # box alignment (much like the calculation of a line box height).

Read literally, it says that 'height' on table cells is ignored unless 'height' on
the table row is non-auto. That seems wrong.
