[mythtv] Long epg discriptions break record screens

The info box drawn at the top of the regular and advanced recordings screens
is generated in libs/libmythtv/programinfo.cpp in
ProgramInfo::DisplayWidget() so if you want to chop any fields, it should
be done in that function/method.  The same widget is used for both
recording options screens.
