Plugin Description cut off on Support/Review Pages

Description

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:
http://wordpress.org/support/view/plugin-reviews/better-file-editor

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.

Fixed in the support forum plugins. The handling will now be more like what the plugin sections are actually doing for handling that short description. This will basically make it ignore the newlines there, as well as limit it in the same manner as the existing plugin-section code does.
