Auto layout displacing items instead of creating container?

Basically, sometimes adding auto-layout displaces the items instead of creating a container, see my recording below.

In my example I forced the behaviour by placing the text on the rectangle border, but it has happened to me when trying to add auto-layout twice to the same combination of container / text, with sometime behaving normally (ie creating a container) and others displacing the two.

I know I’m missing something obvious, but I don’t know what it is!
