You can use the 'Position' property to lengthen the size of the message box:
h = msgbox('Test Long Title','This is a very, very, very long title');
posn = get(h, 'Position');
set(h, 'Position', posn+[0 0 150 0])
You have to experiment to get the result you want.

Either use a shorter title. The title bar of the figure is not a good location for storing meaningful information.
Or increase the size of the window. This works with msgbox only if you display a larger text. But you can create a copy of the msgbox.m file and modify it such that the created figure has the wanted size. But how do you determine the wanted size? It is not easy to measure how much space is required in the title. Therefore the better solution is the first suggestion.
