I entered a subject which took up the full quota of characters but after submitting my thread, the subject was truncated, damaging its coherence.

Account for this limitation when submitting new posts. Remember also that you can edit your initial post: thus you still can shorten the title and edit your contribution to make it coherent independent of the subject of the post.

Did you then edit the message and change the title so that it did make sense?

The 60 character subject line gets truncated to 51 characters. This should be reported as a bug and fixed for usability.

I believe that you would do that here:

Be certain to verify that the bug was not fixed in a newer version of the PHPBB software before you file the bug.
