Nightly 16.0a1 (2012-07-02)  Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:16.0) Gecko/16.0 Firefox/16.0

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open attachment 635667 [details] in Firefox.
2. Select a piece of text containing spaces (e.g. “Health Appraisal Questionnaire” or a part of it).
3. Copy it into clipboard.
4. Paste it into LibreOffice Writer (3.5.4.2 in Debian in my case).

Actual Results:
* The spaces of the text appear grey in LibreOffice.  That may mean something like nbsp, I don’t know.
* When copied to `hexdump -C` or to gedit, the spaces seem normal #20 spaces, and copying the result from gedit into LibreOffice results in normal white spaces.

Expected Results:
Normal spaces.
