First of all, it's important to notice this doesn't actually cut off your actual entry titles, it just cuts off the entry titles displayed
in “Edit entries”. Also, the full title of any entry is in the title attribute, so if you hover the entry title, you should see the full entry title in a tooltip.
It might be possible to change this at some point, but not using CSS. I'm not sure where we are on this right now, but it's possible the whole backend will remain smartified, so you could adapt that using Smarty, just like you can do with frontend template files.
That being said, all this is indeed on purpose. The 2.0 backend is responsive, which means it is supposed to work on a lot of different screen resolutions. In order to make the layout work on all of them, we had to save space in some places. The length of the entry titles in “Edit entries” is one of them.
We might be able to emit a few more characters there, but since there's no way to tell how long these entry titles might get in various blogs, trimming the emitted length made it easier to get the layout up and running, especially on small screens. Emitting the full length title will most likely not work on small screens, and there's no good way to limit the length based on the screen resolution.
Why is it a problem that the entry titles are cut off anyway? You should be able to tell entries apart based on the cut-off part, right? It's not like it's limited to 10 characters or something …
