Ok, sry, now i could reproduce your problem.
After the above steps, go to the first parenthesis of the output and
type enter. Then the '...' expands to the full description.

Btw, the "problem" seems to be related to this:

RET (translated from <return>) runs the command last-sexp-toggle-
display
  which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `c:/Arquivos de
programas/emacs/emacs/lisp/emacs-lisp/lisp-mode.elc'.
It is bound to <mouse-2>, RET.
(last-sexp-toggle-display &optional ARG)

Toggle between abbreviated and unabbreviated printed representations.


HTH,
weber
