(Changing back to the right subject line).

Here's a technical peace offering, separate inlet & outlet height defines: https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/pull/328 <https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/pull/328>

In my mind, we could change these defines to canvas variables in the future ala x->gl_iheight, x->g_oheight, etc.

As far as I could tell, on my macOS system, inlets at 2 pixels high render fine without a white fill. I added a color fill for the 3 pixel height, otherwise the default white fill shows through. I think the object sizing might need to be adjusted more based on the height for more variability.
