I haven't investigated this particular case, but I can note that %-of-auto  
quirk doesn't work in WebKit and Blink as it does in Gecko. The spec for  
this quirk  
https://quirks.spec.whatwg.org/#the-percentage-height-calculation-quirk is  
trying to align more with Gecko.

Fixing this in Blink turns out to affect lots of test cases, so it seems  
there is no activity on that front currently. :-(
