[PD] changing the look of Pd to be more readable

and one other detail: in windows, everytime you open up a window  
(subpatch, abstraction, whatever), the window opens up a tiny bit bigger  
as before. I didn't notice it happening in linux. So after someone has  
saved a very nicely proportioned and pretty patch with the windows just  
the right size etc., after those windows have been open a few times the  
proportions are messed up.
this is only a detail that many people don't notice, but in my "good"  
patches I put some effort on the gui building, also making windows that  
have the explanatory text, etc (look at jmmmp/gui-edit, for example). and  
I guess that if someone if producing something pretty (specially for a  
client or to be distributed) it can be a bother. not to speak that in a  
limit case, the windows can go off screen.
