I'm not sure what the deal is with all these trailing spaces in these
messages, but they sure are annoying to translators and everyone else
that prefers consistant writing of messages. Please see
http://developer.gnome.org/doc/tutorials/gnome-i18n/developer.html#language
about why consistent writing is important for translation.
