In the "Top Questions" and "Top Answers" listings on Stack Exchange global profiles, the last and first characters are missing from any titles that start with a double-quote character.

I noticed this happening to a "Top Question" in my global profile on StackExchange.com:


 original title: "Abusing" bounties for unlimited profit
displayed title: Abusing" bounties for unlimited profi

As a test, I prepended a double-quote character to the title of another one of my other top posts. The same thing happened to it.

I found the same thing happening to the title of a "Top Answer" in another user's profile:


 original title: "[open]" + "[source]" versus "[open-source]"
displayed title: [open]“ + ”[source]“ versus ”[open-source]

This affects the URL slugs as well as the displayed titles.

Seems like this bug... I'll bug Demis when he gets into the office tomorrow. –  Emmett Jun 5 '12 at 2:43
    
@emmett still an issue? getting flags on this, as frequently as yesterday –  Jeff Atwood Jul 16 '12 at 19:35
    
@Emmett This seems to be fixed for questions but not for answers. –  Jeremy Banks Jul 17 '12 at 22:43

Demis was kind enough to quickly push a ServiceStack fix so this is working correctly again. Thanks for the report.

Is the fix live? I just saw the issue again today and accidentally posted another bug report. –  Cory Larson Jun 12 '12 at 21:19
    
@Cory Ah yeah, we need to pull the fix into the core SO codebase as well. Thanks for the heads up. –  Emmett Jun 14 '12 at 18:45
