I was taking a look to this bug [1] and I think that current behavior
matches the spec [2]:
"If the inline or block size of the grid container is indefinite,
<percentage> values relative to that size are treated as 'auto'"

In that case we're talking about a "grid container without an explicitly
declared width" which seems indefinite.
So, current behavior would be right, and you would need to set the width
of the grid container to get the expected behavior.

Am I missing something?
