Here is one example:

Look for "sarven". Shows description as:
"24 Jan 2008 ... An introduction to microformats: what they are, why
we need them and briefly how to use them."

It *appears* to be that this happens when the description is less then

Here is another example:

Which doesn't include the timestamp.


Which doesn't include the second sentence but fills it in with the timestamp.
