Post title parser needs attention!

Whatever it is that processes the titles people give to their posts, in order to show them in the sets of five (recent posts, recent fixes, unread posts, etc.) definitely needs some attention!

Firstly, it truncates them viciously: OK, there's only so much horizontal space in the lists-of-five, but they should wrap.

But also, it sometimes throws a wobbly! I recently saw in one of the lists a post that was apparently just titled


! I clicked into it out of curiosity, and found that the post was actually titled

Is <hostname> Down?

(Yes, I told the poster about Is it down? Check at Down for Everyone or Just Me, and that it said the host being asked about was indeed down, but that's not the point of this post.)

This isn't the only example of it behaving oddly.
