That testcase just needs fixing -- it was added to test the first
incarnation of "min-width:auto"/"min-height:auto", in this changeset:
https://hg.csswg.org/test/rev/6240b00284f5

(specifically, it's here:
https://hg.csswg.org/test/annotate/6240b00284f5/contributors/opera/submitted/css3-flexbox/min-width-auto.html
)

At that point in time (2012), we had the earlier incarnation of
"min-width:auto"/"min-height:auto" which just meant min-content size --
no special cases. Spec reference from that time period:
