Page header overrun

Description of problem:
For sections with very long titles, these titles can overrun the page width when used as page headers. This behaviour only happens in PDFs.

How reproducible:
The limit seems to be around 100 characters.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a section with a very long title and a few pages of content afterwards.
2. Generate a PDF.
3. Observe over-runnage of section title as page header.
4. Weep, gnash teeth.
Actual results:
Very long section title overruns page as page header.

Expected results:
Very long section title does not overrun page header, perhaps through use of a forced line break.

Additional info:
See screen shot for example.

Verified on publican-3.0-0.fc17.t180.noarch

Publican 3.0 uses the chapter or appendix title in place of the section title for page headers, which are probably less likely to contain over-long strings. However, when presented with an over-long chapter of appendix title, Publican 3.0 simply doesn't present anything in the page header, which is certainly better than presenting something broken.
