You totally misunderstand what I am saying.
The issue has nothing to do with table width or adding variables. It is as I said all along and Michael has said in the other thread you linked VB
uses a FIXED WIDTH column of 60.
We use a FIXED WIDTH column of 80
I simply stated the easiest thing for us to consider is reducing the columns and no the fixed width will not superceed a column setting as thats what is breaking your already fixed set width is that column setting of 80.
Try very simply putting back into place the non edited files and doing the edit I stated above by replacing in quickcom.tmpl to 60 column width from 80 and you will see problem on small fixed width sites solved.
I cant say when and if this is included as I am not the developer
