This can be handled with the following code:

select {
    width: 100%;
    white-space: nowrap;
    overflow: hidden;
    text-overflow: ellipsis;

Not sure where/how to implement, would this be limited to select ?

It looks like in the latest version of WP (5.5 at the time of this comment), a really long page title will cause a wide dropdown menu, but it's limited to the width of the window and is abbreviated with an ellipsis. The select element is also limited with a max-width: 25rem.

I'm going to close this one out because I can't reproduce the original issue. If someone is still able to reproduce, feel free to reopen this with more details to reproduce.
