Patch to remove trailing spaces from truncate result.

Reported by Philip Hallstrom | February 1st, 2011 @ 07:05 PM

Currently it's possible to end up with a space in the truncated results. That is:

"one two three".truncate(7) => "one ..."

The attached patch (and tests) change the result to remove that trailing space so that the result is "one...".

This changes the default behavior so may not be desirable, but it seems reasonable. If not, I could modify truncate() to accept a "strip" option which would apply the new behavior otherwise leave it as is. Thoughts?

    This issue still applies to the 3-0 stable branch and is still applicable. Previous patch/tests still apply and pass.
