Huh!  Interesting.  Because I know for a fact that I'm hitting the space 
bar twice and not a NBSP.  (I use and maintain 
https://github.com/kragen/xcompose so I can type all kinds of things; 
NBSP is Multi-Key Space Space).  I guess because my mailer has me 
composing things in HTML mode, and I double-space my periods, and it's 
thinking "strings of whitespace are collapsed into a single space in 
HTML!  I'd better do something to make sure those extra spaces, which he 
took so much care to type, aren't lost!" and makes on a NBSP to take up 
extra space.  (There was recently a whole discussion on the Unicode 
mailing list about how 0x00A0 is almost universally used as a 
fixed-width space when the specs say it should be flex-width, sigh.)
