When you create a new article, if you insert a LONG title (aka, really long) various issues are noticed:

-Resizal of screen width to fit title into one looong line (wrapping or ellipsis might do the trick)
-On drafts view, 3/4 lines of title are displayed so if you have other drafts it gets spilled to content below
-On delete draft view, the whole title is loaded, can span up to 2 or 3 window heights worth of scroll
-On published view, title spills over other articles

Would it be useful to cap the title length to not be n characters?

I've fixed up all the display issues but leaving this open as an enhancement to actually cap the title field at a reasonable number of characters.
