Pingbacks contain some chars of the title of the previous blog entry. has a pingback to

The pingback text starts with: "[…] orelle Hurd, Duke Nukem"...

"Hurd, Duke Nukem" is the correct title of the blog entry, but "orelle" is part of the title of the previous blog entry.

Also happens with a blog entry where the pingback points to the blog itself (see p=103).
