If you read the documentation for truncate-lines, you will find the
following paragraph:

    Note that this is overridden by the variable
    `truncate-partial-width-windows' if that variable is non-nil
    and this buffer is not full-frame width.

If that is not good enough -- perhaps you did not realize that
splitting with C-x 3 results in "buffers not full-frame width" -- then
I hope you will file a bug report.  Just use M-x report-emacs-bug and
explain the problem.  Bugs in the documentation are just that: Bugs.
And we need people to spot these, too.  :)
