I've received a report from a Debian user where text in some table (see the screenshot) got truncated, apparently in the middle of some utf8 character. Some other cell is reported as being empty where it should have some content.

Subject: Bug#682954: [phppgadmin] The phpPgAdmin displays table data poorly
in the Table Browse view some of the datas are poorly displayed.
What I'm mean here is visible if one download the image of this
display problem from here (one must click on the download icon):
I can try to explain the problem here in words.
(English isn't my first language.)
On the image one can see 9 rows in the Table.
All rows are displayed properly but but the second, third and sixth.
In the column named 'unnep_neve' phpPgAdmin display the column
too strait so one can see the text in the second row as
'A II. világháború szerb áldozatainak emlékna…'
in place of the proper text:
'A II. világháború szerb áldozatainak emléknapja'.
In the second row in the 'megjegyzes' column one can see empty field,
but there should to be the text:
'November 11. a napja, de az vasárnapra esik, ezért hétfőn ünnepeljük meg.'
In the sixth row the problem is the same as in the second row,
but with different text.
So it seems to me that that phpPgAdmin displays Table data poorly because if
a text in a column exceeds some length then it can't be seen properly or at all.
Certainly in the psql prompt these rows can be seen properly when I run the
SELECT statement on this table.
