[PD] symbol atom: ambiguous limit

Hey all

The symbol atom has an implicit limit of 80 characters. Higher values
configured in the 'Atom Box Properties' are truncated to 80 characters.
The maximum length of symbols created with a symbol atom is 40
characters. Why this difference? Wouldn't it make sense to use the same
limit for both the internal buffer and the visible width?

BTW: Personally, I find the buffer limit of 40 character quite low. I'd
rather have this one increased to 80 than the max width lowered to 40
