This is a more general problem, where you often want to know the width
of the window that will be used to display a buffer before filling the
buffer but you also sometimes need to know the content of the buffer in
order to choose the best size for the window that will display it.

In your case you may be able to adjust the buffer's content from
temp-buffer-show-hook (which is run after the buffer was displayed).
