This a known and reported bug of more than 2 years standing.

It occurs because the single word of a name part is just too long for
the box width. Then a bug in the line wrapping code removes the first

The work around is make sure that you increase the box width. Also if
you have hyphenated surnames enter them with a space after the hyphen
and VCF will wrap at that space if required.
