Hi Martin,

Can you check again (the old "stupid check" trick) whether you really 
have a space there or could it be a tab? Also, how did you set the 
justification : right or left or center align or justify or block 
(forced justification)? This is odd. Did you try to reproduce this with 
another text frame, another font?
