Actually, on other forums, the name would still be too long (with font size that large, anyway). Under normal circumstances, at least from my experience with vBulletin, it simply stretches the box (which, in itself, is destroying the layout, just to an arguably minor degree). This forum seems to extend the name to another line rather than stretch the box. Maybe the one who made the decision doesn't want the box being stretched out? I don't know. With a fluid style layout, I don't understand why.
