    Layout question - shouldn't this get clipped instead of "run-over"

    One_Life Level 1



      Can you tell me in the following simple layout test, is Flex making an error here, i.e.:


         - why doesn't the Panel span the entire HGroup?


         - shouldn't label 3 get cut-off instead of going beyond the HGroup, which is set to a 250 pixel width?

            <s:HorizontalLayout />
          <s:HGroup width="250" gap="5">
            <s:Label backgroundColor="blue" text="Label 1"  width="100" />
            <s:Label id="lab2" backgroundColor="green" text="Label 2"  width="100" />
            <s:Label id="lab3" backgroundColor="yellow"
              text="Label 3 is longer with no width specified" />
