[Reportbug-maint] Bug#665348: reportbug: RESOLVED information can be hidden due to truncation

Package: reportbug
Version: 6.3.1
Severity: minor

When a bug is closed, reportbug usually prints "[RESOLVED]" after
the bug title. But if it doesn't fit in the line, this information
is not visible. For instance, with a wide terminal:

  23) #637374  gnuplot-x11: buggy rendering with some window sizes and default terminal wxt  [RESOLVED]

but with a 80-column terminal:

  23) #637374  gnuplot-x11: buggy rendering with some window sizes and default 

The title should be truncated so that this "[RESOLVED]" text is
visible. Alternatively, "[RESOLVED]" information could be displayed
in another way, e.g.
  * with a marker in one of the first columns,
  * with a different color (when the terminal has color support).
