Long nickname table nesting should not include timestamp

See for the visual result of this bug. When we have a long nickname, we basically insert this row into the table:
  <tr class="msg-nested-tr"><td colspan="3" class="msg-nested-td">
and put the normal row inside there (with a wrapper table/tbody).

The problem, as is clear from the image, is that we lose the width of the timestamp column if there is no text in it. The solution is to only put the nickname and text cells into the nested table.

Alright, so to update this slightly: we can't keep the nickname column outside the nested table, since that would mess up vertical alignment of the timestamps when we use the same nested table for multiple lines (collapsing).

That means, the only option is to - somehow - enforce the width of the timestamp cell. If we're showing all timestamps, it isn't an issue, but perhaps we could always insert the timestamp into the first row of a nested table, and just visibility: hidden; it?

Is this not fixed? I tried it just now, can't reproduce. :-(
It's definitely still broken, looks exactly like the original screenshot too.
