"there is definitely i limit in [print];
there might be a limit in the symbol-length but i never found one (the
symbol i ever made was some 20.000 chars long)"
The bug/feature I found concerns symbol lists, where the second symbol
is cut if it exceeds appr. 100 characters. Thus, I didn't see any link
to your comment about a limit of 20.000 chars and my bug report.

OK. I think, this behaviour should be mentioned in print-help.pd. What
is the right branch to check-in this kind of changes? (I've never
contributed to pd CVS)
PS: @Hannes: sorry being unsubscribed to gem-dev and pd-dev lists. I'm
sure you contribute to any many other discussions which I neither read
nor understand. I'm just a pd user and I know it - there's no need to
remind me about that...
