I thought that this change is related to table-layout="auto" so I tried
it before posting my message here. If I specify table-layout="auto" and
omit <fo:table-column column-width="..."/> table and column widths are
calculated automatically.

But I want explicit column widths, so I used <fo:table-column .../>. But
when I add table-layout="auto" to such table, table is expanded to 100%.
See attached FO file. I would expect that the last three tables should
look same (this result gives me XEP3).
