http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/tables.html#fixed-table-layout says:

   The table's width may be specified explicitly with the 'width'
   property. A value of 'auto' (for both 'display: table' and 'display:
   inline-table') means use the automatic table layout algorithm.

so you're still getting the same behavior as "table-layout: auto" 
because your table doesn't have a fixed width....
