Recently I've noticed that trackback excerpts are not really relevant to the content of the page sending the ping, whether this be my own page or another page.
For example, the link text usually is something like "Previous Post title | Next Post title" and the actual text something like "Post title". Not only is this not relevant to the post, but is also misleading.
It seems that the content of the page is not really detected, it just starts getting text from the beginning of the page (the navigation links being the link text being an example of that).
Has there been any recent changes to the trackback functions? I have a highly customized template, so I wanted to check if this is just happening to me or is it generalized. Also, any clue as to where I should start checking for an answer (which functions are involved) would be highly appreciated.
