[PD] sdtout converts symbol with space to list

pd did not have any escape character to deal with space.
this is a generic problem more than a bug.

so, you should find dirty hack to avoid problem.
if you have only a symbol, then it's not a problem to split it to a list and make back a symbol thanks to symbol2list and list2symbol.

if you wish to send a list composed of symbol (with space) and other value, then it's a bit harder.
here is a very crappy workaround assuming list are always composed of one symbol and one float.
