 Thanks very much for the clarification, Cartographer. Using your suggested
 group name, I was able to replicate (because a Greek group name plus a
 Greek topic name made the URL long enough to break things).

 The issue is that the `primary_link` column in the activity table is
 `VARCHAR(255)`. When the Greek characters are URL encoded to save to this
 field, it makes the URL longer than 255 characters.

 Easiest (though perhaps the lamest) fix is to lift the 255 char
 restriction. There are a collection of issues on core Trac that are
 related; see eg https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/29573. It would be
 nice to get someone with more multibyte and character-encoding-in-MySQL
 experience to chime in on our options aside from upping the 255 char
 limit. But let's do something for 2.2.
