New submission from robert1234 <rv.trashbin at gmail.com>:

Hi, the context line in diff (that shows function name) is really useful,
but I noticed that it shows only first 40 characters of the line which tends
to cut names of many methods, especially when they are prefixed by class
name and a return type in C++.

The consequence is that I cannot copy the function name into log message in
TortoiseHg commit dialog which slows down the workflow, because I have to
look up the function in original sources.

Please extend this limit to 80 characters or until '(' is found.
