Example case from #22524 (comment) where the default repr is doing something wrong:

In [8]: import geopandas 
   ...: world = geopandas.read_file(geopandas.datasets.get_path('naturalearth_lowres')) 

In [9]: pd.options.display.max_columns = 0   # default

In [17]: world.head()                                                           
      pop_est                        ...                                                         
0  28400000.0                        ...                          POLYGON ((61.2

[5 rows x 6 columns]

So it detects (probably correctly) that is can only show two columns in the current console width, but, then it adds so much white space between the two columns that it ends up being too wide. This results in an overflow of the lines, giving this very strange (and unclear) repr.
