Huh?  This is from a totally different thread. ^_^

This example should wrap, *because there's a min-width:3em*.  (And in
general, if there's *not* a min-width, the default specced behavior of
min-width:auto should cover this case and make them wrap as well, but
browsers don't all follow the spec here yet.  In this particular case,
the min-width:auto behavior will still let them get small enough to
avoid wrapping.)

Anything which doesn't wrap this example is definitely buggy.
