A few experiments indicate that, at least in 
some circumstances, -tabulate- in Stata chops at 39 characters. 
So if your labels are cut in half, they must be about 
78 characters long. 

-table-, and -tabdisp- which it uses, appear to chop 
at 40 characters. 

A few experiments indicate that changing the setting
of -linesize- makes no difference. 

Another even more homespun way is illustrated by this 
example: 

. u auto
. bysort foreign : egen freq = sum(1) 
. egen tag = tag(foreign) 
. list foreign freq if tag
