This truncate you are talking about is breaking the line when it reaches
a specific column? if it is, you must try setting off the
auto-fill-mode:

M-x auto-fill-mode

,----[ C-h f get-buffer RET ]
| auto-fill-mode is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `simple'.
| (auto-fill-mode &optional ARG)
| 
| Toggle Auto Fill mode.
| With arg, turn Auto Fill mode on if and only if arg is positive.
| In Auto Fill mode, inserting a space at a column beyond `current-fill-column'
| automatically breaks the line at a previous space.
| 
| The value of `normal-auto-fill-function' specifies the function to use
| for `auto-fill-function' when turning Auto Fill mode on.
