oh does it ?
i think that's the 3rd time in the last week i am writing to pd-related lists
(once to gem-dev, one to pd-list (or was it pd-dev ??) about this very behaviour
of [print].

> Is this a feature, a bug, is it documented, why not cut the first symbol

i think none of them (i guess it's a safety check against locking the connection
between pd and pd-gui; so that would be a feature if you have stability in mind;
for most others it might appear a bug)

why it is not working on the "first symbol" is probably, because it is
considered a selector rather than a symbol. (don't know though; i would have to
check the code - should be in s_print.c)
