This is not related to type of road, but type of symbol. :box and :hbox 
cannot display certain types of labels (see older messages from me) - 
other like :oval have no restrictions and you can input more or less 
whatever you like.

a) don't use :box and :hbox
b) cut values before putting them into :box and :hbox so that they will 
actually display ...
