When this question is shown in a review queue its title flows into the sidebar because the title doesn't contain any spaces.

enter image description here

If there is a simple solution and that page is touched can this be fixed?

This is repro-ed in IE11, Chrome and Firefox on Windows 7.

    Yikes, not a single space in the title! Guess they didn't cover all the corners yet. I'm tempted to edit to "fix" this, lol. Commented Jul 6, 2014 at 21:42
  • I view this as a feature, drawing immediate attention to the fact that the title is probably bad and needs editing.

    @Geobits As soon as this get tagged status-declined we re-tag it as faq. Should I edit titles that screw up the layout of the site? Answer: Yes

I've modified the h1 container of the question title adding overflow: hidden; text-overflow: ellipsis; which creates a nice "trailing off with ..." effect for long titles such as the one in your example. It'll be live in the next build (> rev 2014.7.9.2359).
