Summary: text-overflow: ellipsis → text-overflow: ellipsis has problems within tables
That's the correct rendering.  There is no overflow, because auto-layout cells don't overflow horizontally due to width settings.  test-overflow:ellipsis has nothing to do with the situation, since there is no overflow to start with.

If you put "table-layout: fixed" on the table, you get overflow, and then you also get an ellipsis, of course.
