I believe there was some dialogue about the cloud dissipating as it approached Earth. Presumably, this includes the 82 AU's worth of structure.
No, they really did change the original size of V'Ger. In the original, the commander of the space station says that the cloud is over 82 AU's in diameter. The director's cut edits his line so that the "80" is removed and he only says "over 2 AU's".
