[PD] comments with trailing | ?

It is quite literally a horizontal line drawn to represent an anchor in editmode that you can click and drag to change the width of the comment.  It certainly does look exactly like a pipe character, is confusing, and has no relationship with any of the widget behaviors of modern gui toolkits.

It could also just as easily be a dashed box around the comment, which would be less confusing, more obvious, and have no significant performance hit over a vertical line.

When I insert a comment into a patch, there is always a trailing |
(pipe) character (perhaps some sort of a cursor), that remains
visible, also after clicking on the canvas background to end editing
the comment. Upon file save, close, and re-open the | is gone, until I
enter Edit mode.

Does anyone else experience this?

best, P
