Reading the code (src/GridText.c, display_title()), I only see it doing
a truncation of the title string based on its length.  If your title contains
non-ASCII text, it may therefore split one of the multibyte characters.
I don't see an explicit ';', so it's possible that is just trash from an
incomplete character.
