If menu entry is too long, grub just truncates it on the last character that fits the screen.

It would be nice to replace last character with ellipsis in such cases so the users will notice that the lin is truncated.

Sometimes we meet such situations with our products and use a patch (attached) to implement the suggested behavior.
