bug#4334: 23.1.50; truncate-partial-width-windows documentation problem

Thanks Eli & Stefan on explaining this.

How about something like the following?

-----------------------
Documentation:
A value n sets the display to show only the first n characters per line.

This variable applies only when you have vertically split windows, and
when window width is less or equal to n.

You can customize this variable.

This variable was introduced, or its default value was changed, in
version 23.1 of Emacs.
-----------------------

Note that i removed the line “If `word-wrap' is enabled, you might
want to reduce this.”.  I don't see that line appropriate, nor as
sensible suggestion. My gut feelings i'd rather want slightly larger
value of n if word-wrap is enabled.

it's not clear to me what happens when the value is something other than positive integer and is not nil. The original doc seems to suggest that has particular behavior...

Thanks.
