This is a known problem, according to this comment in src/minibuf.c
(Fdisplay_completion_list):

          /* This does a bad job for narrower than usual windows.
             Sadly, the window it will appear in is not known
             until after the text has been made.  */

Perhaps all the hard-coded numbers there, which are presumably based on an
80-column window, could be adjusted to instead assume that the completions
will be displayed in a window that's the same width as the current window.
