Wrong English transliteration in address bar (forum bug) (問題があります)

When a person posts a thread in the Jisho.org forum, an English transliteration of the post title can be seen in the address bar.
However, the transliteration seems incorrect. The kanji was treated like Chinese characters rather than Japanese.
The small tsu became "tu" instead of the next consonant. Small letters was treated wrongly. The hiragana "no" was turned into "false".

Yes, this is a known issue. I'm using a 3rd party library to generate the forum URLs, but unfortunately it handles kanji as if they were Chinese. It's something I hope to fix at some point, but it's far down on my list I'm afraid.
