Well, lovely. I've found that "systemctl --full list-timers" truncates
the display if your terminal isn't wide enough (at least it truncates
using xfce-terminal) and gives you no indication it has done so. Isn't
"--full" supposed to wrap the display so that doesn't happen? That's
what the man page says it does.

Yet another reason I absolutely deplore this systemd/systemctl crap.
