Bug fixed in version 3.3 of buffers.pl, with a "not perfect" solution: the option is now a number of chars (so with some wide chars, you have a longer length on screen).
But this option "buffers.look.name_size_max" will become obsolete when task #11967 will be implemented.

If channel name written with wide characters (japanese or chinese) truncation fails.

Full channel name:
with truncation set to buffers.look.name_size_max = 14

Truncating to 14 wide charaters is no an option too. That's too long. It should truncate to name_size_max / 2.
