I've removed the variable `bmw' completely and replaced it with an

        unsigned int getbmw();

because, afaik, it was only set once (and I don't get any compilation
errors) and used a couple of times (draw.c and event.c). In mainstream
it's set to the length of the longest mode symbol; getbmw() (used in
place of bmw) returns the length of the current symbol based on arrange
and/or TILESYMBOL[apwl] and is called in main.c:setup() and

Until I added this function, a 3 char float symbol had extra whitespace
after changing from a longer-length, say 5 character, tile symbol.

But not anymore, at the expense of the window title shifting when the
mode is changed... But for those of you using FIFO pipes to stdin, this
shouldn't be anything new..

Patch attached.
