    Description

      It reminds me of: http://www.phpbb.com/bugs/phpbb3/25235
      the problem is, mnessage subject is not shortend by truncate_string() as post_subject and topic_title are.

      Fix should be something like:
      includes/functions_privmsg.php

      	// Recipient Information
      	$recipients = $to = $bcc = array();

      after add:

      	// First of all make sure the subject are having the correct length.
      	// To achieve this without cutting off between special chars we convert to an array and then count the elements.
      	$subject = truncate_string($subject);

      The same problem occures while saving drafts of PMs and Posts.

      Also the problem wasn't fixed completely, as it still occures, while replying to a topic.
      this is caused by

      	if ($strip_reply)
      	{
      		$string = 'Re: ' . $string;
      	}

      which is added to the 255 chars after checking for the length.
      the fix for this behaviour is:
      includes/functions_content.php

      while (utf8_strlen($string) > $max_store_length || !sizeof($chars));

      replace with:

      while (utf8_strlen($string) > (($strip_reply) ? ($max_store_length - 4) : $max_store_length) || !sizeof($chars));

      the same problem may occure with $append, just didn't find a place where it is used

      While i was asking some points about this in the #phpbb-qa fawek confirmed this bug in the ACP and UCP
