[PD] limit in print

I found that [print] limits the output of the second symbol in a list. 
Printing a very long symbol works fine, but if the long symbol comes 
behind a short one, [print] shows the first one and cuts the second one 
with a * at the end just like this:


Works fine showing "abcdef" (abcdef is very long symbol, say 100 characters)

[a abcdef(

Results in "a abc*" !

See attached patch, as well.

Is this a feature, a bug, is it documented, why not cut the first symbol 
too? Just some questions...
