[issue2570] web graph: long commit message text wraps around and overwrites itself

New submission from Ariel <afaigon at couponsinc.com>:

I noticed that when long commit messages are being used (one long line
without a line break in the commit message), they tend to wrap over one
another and mess up the web-graph view.

Attaching an image showing the problem. The most notable instance is marked
with a red ellipse, but you can see the same problem in 6 separate instances
on the same image.

I'm using firefox on Ubuntu for my web view. Commits were mostly done on Mac
OS-X if that matters.

Possible (easy) solution is to trim too-long messages to ~80-chars before
displaying them. A harder solution is to allow more than one line in the
display for each changeset.
