I think the same is true for other Python IDEs as well.
It certainly is for IDLE.

In general, I think it's difficult for editors to handle
very long lists. Maybe there should be some kind of line
wrap function (optional) in PythonWin, so that the result
of something like "from wxPython import wx; dir(wx)" would
be displayed over several lines, and not jut be partly
displayed on one line...
