------------------------------------

When I apply the patch, the tests don't pass. ie) Looks like the fix doesn't fix it.

> In WordUtils.abbreviate, upper is adjusted to the length of the string, then to lower.
> But lower is never adjusted to the length of the string, so if lower is greater than
str.lengt(), upper will be too...
> Then, str.substring(0, upper) throw a StringIndexOutOfBoundsException
> The fix is to adjust lower to the length of the string
