You should have the most important keyword in both the url and the title regardless of which is more important. And if frogdropping were here she might probably say that your keywords should make up about 4-5% of your text.
The Title is more important than the URL.
Search engines regularly crawl and index, and even rank highly, forum threads. Even now most forum software will have the URL as a number, eg: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/37414
But still, have it in the URL for the sake of the humans who might be copying, pasting and sending it to friends via email or spelling it out to them over the phone.

I heard someone say that if possible your hub title should be the exact keyword that you use as your main keyword, if you want to rank high in search engines. But that doesnt allow for a catchy title which will get you...
