dpkg -l needs wider package name output

It seems that there is an arbitrary limit on 'dpkg -l':  it only seems
to output the first 14 characters of any package name.  For example:

# dpkg -l | grep -i sdl
ii  libsdl1.2debia 1.2.5-3        Simple DirectMedia Layer (with X11 and OSS o

If I didn't remember installing 'libsdl1.2debian-oss' previously, I'd
have no idea what this package name was.

Is there any known cure?
