  You might try setting a given window geometry
  to accomodate the long title .... 

  win_w = 400 
  win_h = 300

  ofs_h = 40
  ofs_v = 30

  window.geometry( "%dx%d+%d+%d" % ( win_w , win_h , ofs_h , ofs_v ) )

  
  Maybe add a bit of extra space for users 
  with different default font sizes ....

  Not a general solution 
  but perhaps workable ....
