I think that is the main concern here. How wide should the _auto- 
width_ wrapping floated box be in this case ?
Should it be as wide as the box with 'overflow:hidden', or should the  
width of the wrapper include that of the floated inner-box ?

Here is a slightly different test case. It differs from Ingo's  
testcase mainly by adding white space after the ':' in the  
'overflow:hidden' string.
The other boxes are there for the purpose of reference and comparison.
