 Thanks for tracking this down a bit, hnla. There seem to be two problems.
 The first is that the regex change in [9523] made the tag check too
 liberal, with the result that some larger-than-desired chunks were being
 detected. The second is that the `exact=false` logic - which ensures that
 strings are only truncated on word boundaries - was not distinguishing
 between a space that is a word boundary and a space that appears inside of
 an HTML tag. That is, when truncating `Foo <a
 href="http://example.com">Bar</a> Baz` with `exact=false`, we should never
 break on the space between `a` and `href`.

 Please test [attachment:6517.diff] to see if it's solving your problems.
