** Test title resulting in a URL with a leading dash

We have detected a condition causing server 500 errors (not a good thing) when the entry title contains non-alpha/numeric leading characters.

The Entry Title is used to create an entry URL with non-alpha/numeric and spaces replaced with dashes. Example:

This is an entry title generates a URL this-is-an-entry-title.html

When a title is entered as:

** This is an entry title **
MT generates -this-is-an-entry-title.html

The leading dash in the URL causes the error. It has been reported to MT support.
