For a couple weeks now, the number of visible characters in Module item names has been frustratingly small. See attached screen shot.
Look at all that wasted space! What the heck? This must be a bug, right? I sure hope it gets fixed SOON.

Keith Rowley, I've marked David Lyons's response as the "Correct Answer" because the link he has provided indicates that this is both a deliberate design decision and under continuing review by the Canvas design team. For future reference, if you ever suspect anything in Canvas is a bug, the best course of action is to submit a help ticket, as that will enable Canvas to collect evidence across multiple instances, users, and courses, that they can then use to evaluate a given situation.
