[PD] message box issue with blank spaces

Ok I have it.

This does work as expected:

[makefilename foo%cbar]
[set $1(
[  (

Then you can bang the last message box and feed its output to a [list 
length] to verify it is one symbol (well, not a symbol, one whatever).

But then, if I manually edit the message box and modify it (for example 
add some characters), then the space is reconverted to a "true space" 
and the symbol is broken.

However, I've realised my particular case has a workaround, since I know 
that the box must contain one symbol, so I can glue it again with the 
"32->%c" trick.

I think a general escaping mechanism would really be needed in PD!!! 
(see for example the "self reproducing slashes" bug...)
