Ah, that's interesting. So not using non-breaking spaces can break 
applications. I was more expecting the reverse to happen.

I think we can ignore thin non-breaking spaces like everyone else 
(Gnomefr for instance). At least for now. However, based on your 
previous comment and the fines.pdf report, it seems like putting 
non-breaking spaces everywhere in Wine should be safe enough.
Does anyone object?
