This is incorrect because the box should stretch to the maximum preferred width of its contents (regardless of how word-spacing factors into that width), but instead it falls short, so the text is forced to wrap. When the behavior of word-spacing was changed in r125578, supposedly for compliance with the spec, the maximum width calculation in RenderText was not updated, causing a discrepancy that leads to this bug.
