If you try to open in Nautilus a document like "An example document.doc", Word
will try to open it as An.doc, example.doc, and document.doc (three times
individually), but since they do not exist, it creates an error.

Oddly enough, "An example document.ppt" opens just fine.

The solution you suggested doesn't work unfortunately. Word will remain trying
to open spaced documents separately.
