This bug is related to Item4074.

When summariseChanges function in Render.pm is operated, it tries to truncate contents without considering multibyte character.

I suggest that the line described below should be changed to support multi byte character.

$block =~ s/^(.{$trunc}).*$/$1/ if( $trim );
