Description John Hardman 2016-07-27 00:04:14 UTC
On WinRT 8.1, WinPhone RT 8.1, and UWP, setting 
LineBreakMode = LineBreakMode.HeadTruncation
on a Label actually results in tail truncation occurring rather than the requested head truncation.

On UWP, specifying MiddleTruncation also results in tail truncation happening (I have tested this on WinRT 8.1 and WinPhone RT 8.1, but I would imagine they will show the same problem).
