I think what's happening is that the min-width of the boxes is being set to
the sum of the min-widths of the children, and then 'width' is constrained
by that min-width.

healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
