I'm not completely sure ("emacs -Q" doesn't work too well with Gnus ;-),
but something like (setq special-display-regexps '("^\\*.*\\*$")) might
be sufficient.

The first line doesn't need to be complete, as far as I'm concerned.
And I'm more worried about it staying within the 80 columns limit than
about it being a complete sentence.
IOW, just make sure that if you only read the first 80 chars of
the first line, you get something meaningful that describes the bulk of
the patch.
