javifernandez has just created a new issue for 

== [css-grid] Intrinsic size computation with orthogonal grid items. 
Given the following example: 

<div style="display: grid; grid: 50px / auto; width: min-content; 
font: 25px/1 Ahem; border: 5px solid;">
   <div style="color: magenta; background: cyan;  writing-mode: 
vertical-lr;">XX X</div>
   <div style="color: red; background: blue; grid-column: 2;">XX 

Loading this example in Chrome or Firefox we've got the following

Current draft of Grid Layout specification states the following 
regarding grid container's intrinsic size computation:

[5.2. Sizing Grid 
> The min-content size of a grid container is the sum of the grid 
container’s track sizes (including gutters) in the appropriate axis, 
when the grid is sized under a min-content constraint.

In the example defined above, we need to use grid's container 
intrinsic size as the available space for steps 1 and 2 of the [Grid 
Sizing Algorithm](https://drafts.csswg.org/css-grid/#algo-overview). 
After executing them, the orthogonal item has changed its min-content 
contribution, so as it' state in the specs we need to repeat steps 1 
and 2 with such new min-content contribution. 

Since we are in the middle of a layout, we shouldn't compute again 
grid's container size, so even though column tracks's size have 
changed after running step 3, they is not reflected in the grid's 
intrinsic size.

> 3- Then, if the min-content contribution of any grid items have 
changed based on the row sizes calculated in step 2, steps 1 and 2 are
 repeated with the new min-content contribution and max-content 
contribution (once only).

Hence, I think we have an issue on how grid's intrinsic size is 
defined when there are orthogonal grid items; at least, if we really 
want to apply step 3 of the tracks sizing algorithm. I assume it's 
clear that we shouldn't make intrinsic size computation to depend on
