Show Channels Output Truncated

I’ve done some searching and can’t get a definitive answer on this. I’m running Asterisk 1.8 and whenever I do a ‘core show channels’ or ‘core show channels verbose’ some of the information in certain columns are truncated.

What are my options regarding getting round this problem?

Is there patch for 1.8 or do I need to upgrade to 11?

Or could I potentially modify the Asterisk source code to fix it?

Or could this be an OS rather than an Asterisk issue?

It would be an easy source code change. Make sure that specifying verbose doesn’t solve the problem, first.
