Hmm, I don't think it's supposed to overwrite part of the entry.  I
haven't been able to trigger that on my end.  Here's the setup I tried
with an otherwise vanilla configuration:

    (setq org-agenda-files (list "/tmp/scratch.org"))
    (setq org-agenda-tags-column 25)

where /tmp/scratch.org looks like this

    * TODO foo bar baz                                                      :one:
    * TODO b                                                                :two:

When I run org-todo-list, the longer top entry isn't overwritten:

    Global list of TODO items of type: ALL
    Press ‘N r’ (e.g. ‘0 r’) to search again: (0)[ALL] (1)TODO (2)DONE
      scratch:    TODO foo bar baz :one:
      scratch:    TODO b     :two:

What am I missing?
