Indeed, having a discontinuity is not ideal. :(

> Maybe we should try to set up the algorithm so that its behavior for inflexible items is equal to the limit of its behavior for flexible items with fractional flexibilities? (I think that was part of the motivation here, right?) Or would that cause other problems?

The problem here is that it would be really confusing if inflexible items create space in the container that they don't consume.

I guess our options are to revert the fix here, or to accept the discontinuity in flex container sizing? Or is there another option?
