Description of Error

A customer reported that some of the event names for events from his iCal feed are cut off even if they're under 30 characters. I'm not sure if this changed from the 2.0 system, but the number of characters that can be displayed for an event title should be more than 18 or so. This is the iCal feed that they're using:

All of the events display, but if they have slightly longer names they're cut off with "..."

Steps to Reproduce

Open the app and click on "Calendar". Any event with a name that's over 18 characters or so is cut off with "..."
