It would be good to adjust the print composer data tables so that long text within a row can wrap.

I cannot see this option on my 1.9 weekly build. I have tried looking under the item properties on the Print Composer and clicking through to sub menus off the table insert option. Is the "wrap on text" a recent addition I am missing and just need to update my QGIS for this?

The image posted 18.png was for the Legend and not the Table attribute ;-) - I have posted the errors I get. I don't see a wrap on text option, but I would prefer either to set the column width somehow in the settings or click on a column line and drag it out and let the text wrap inside.

I also get column lines showing after I have deleted attributes. I will post this as a new issue.

I am now using Windows 1.9 Weekly Build QGIS bdd61d5

I'll add a +1 to this. I have site descriptions that I want to print on the second page of the map (back of the sheet). Some of these are quite long and get truncated.
