lars has it now set up so if you file a bug in bugzilla using a title like

 [@ nsCOMPtr_base::assign_from_qi(nsQueryInterface, nsID const&) ]

that bug will get correlated to the stack signature in all the crash summary and detailed reports.

the problem is that our default reports now use the format of 

 [@nsCOMPtr_base::assign_from_qi(nsQueryInterface, nsID const&) ]

for titles on bugs.  when people cut a paste this format into the title field with out the space following the at sign, then the auto correlation doesn't happen and the bug numbers to show up in the crash-stats reports. then we need to go back and edit the titles or explain to people how the correlation system works and what format is required.

if we change the socorro to include the space after the special "[@ " indicator then things will just work by default and things will go smoother and faster din reporting crash bugs.

this should be a simple formating change to make, unless I'm missing something, and hopefulling can be squeezed into the next socorro release.

My bad on grabbing the bug, this looks like a backend only change.

Err... I'm pretty sure that the space after "@" doesn't actually matter. Socorro will match on both. I don't think there's anything to fix here.

we've spent time teaching people to use one format (with a space), we shouldn't go off and confuse people.
timeless: Both work just fine. I don't see any reason to change the code so that they don't work just fine.

What's the bug here?

Fixed r1518. Also limiting size of this area to avoid bleed into Sumo link.
