#293: Plugin Description cut off on Support/Review Pages

 The short description for plugins shown next to the download button are
 cut off significantly shorter on the Support and Review pages than they
 are on all other plugin pages.

 I imagine this probably has something to do with functionality implemented
 in bbPress since it's just those two pages. Here's at least one plugin
 this affects:

 However, it's important to note that I've attempted to find other plugins
 this happens to, and theres many plugins this doesn't happen to. I have
 come up with a theory though:

 The plugin this happens to defines this description in the readme.txt as
 usual, but it uses a nice 80 column text wrap, so the short description is
 defined over two lines, broken at exactly the same point the description
 is cut off on these Support and Review pages. Other plugins this works
 properly with only define the short description on one line - extending
 well past the usual 80-column limit.
