When editing users or groups permissions, often, the select widget crops the permission description. As shown on the screenshot attached to this ticket, cropping happens even for a model shipped by Django, namely
ContentType. This isn't a very long name — 11 characters only.
The situation gets worse quickly when you have a long model name (eg.
ScheduledMaintenance) and many custom permissions; it becomes very hard to differentiate them.
I think the widget was designed for 640px-wide screens. Nowadays I think we can aim for a minimum of 1024px. I'm attaching a patch.
