User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020814
Build Identifier: Chimera/2002081905

Tab titles should not be cut off mid-character at the right boundary. Instead,
the title should be more gracefully truncated between characters, and the
horizontal ellipsis character (three periods, Unicode hex 0133) should be appended.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a new Chimera window, make tab bar visible by opening at least two tabs
2. Access [http://mozillazine.org/]
Actual Results:  
The tab title cuts off in the middle of a letter "o."

Expected Results:  
The title should have been truncated between two letters, and the horizontal
ellipsis character appended, perhaps as "Your Source for…" or "Your Source for …".
simon, are you working on something like this already?

I wonder if the ellipsis should be appended to non-whitespace characters only.

Whoops, sorry, Simon. I guess I missed it by a day. Updated to
Chimera/2002082005 and now it works.
