There appear to be two different kinds of warnings:

  warning: around line 35: table wider than line width
  warning: around line 35: table squeezed horizontally to fit line length

This one is saying that tbl/groff was able to squeeze the table
into the line width, but only by making the column separations
smaller than what they would otherwise be (in effect, the "expand"
becomes a "shrink").  Nevertheless, the final table has *exactly*
the width of the line.

If, when all column separations have been reduced to zero, the
table is still wider than the line length, then you get this

  warning: around line 367: table wider than line width
  warning: around line 367: column separation set to zero
