This looks to me like just an oversight/bug in Chrome & Firefox.

I think it makes more sense to use the (flex-basis-based) hypothetical
main size, as you suggest & as the spec seems to require. That way, we
won't end up with weird cases where an auto-sized flex container has way
too much (or too little) space.

(I've filed to fix
this in Gecko, as long as there's agreement here on what the correct
behavior should be.)
