  [Hardy] Whitespace in command line not always regural whitespace

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The following happen to me, if I still have Alt Gr key down when
  pressing space key (which happens easily):

  E.g. grep does not work here (always):

  $ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep device
  bash:  grep: command not found
  $ grep
  Usage: grep [OPTION]... PATTERN [FILE]...
  Try `grep --help' for more information.

  Same thing with less command:
  $ lspci | less
  bash:  less: command not found
  $ less
  Missing filename ("less --help" for help)

  I expect exactly same looking command lines work same way.
