I've spent a lot of time adding keywords to my photos. Well over 200000 photos. Probably several thousand hierarchical keywords. When I look at my list of keywords in the keyword panel, the list is truncate -- that is, I see about 90% of them, but near the end, the keywords stop showing and I can't scroll any further. I know the keywords are still there, because I can use them in searches. I just can't see or select them any longer. This was not a problem in Lightroom 5.

You're probably on Windows? You've likely hit a long-standing limitation of Windows LR -- it can only display about 1500-1600 keywords in the Keyword List panel. You'll have to collapse some of parent keywords or introduce more hierarchy to make sure that fewer than 1500 keywords are currently visible.
