[squeak-dev] non braking space oddity

While looking at http://bugs.squeak.org/view.php?id=7211, I found this
Character nbsp isSeparator. -> false
(Scanner new typeTableAt: Character nbsp) -> #xBinary
That makes nbsp a valid binary selector, and that ain't good...
Example: I thought I would compile a method #bingo, but I compile a
method with an invisible binary selector...
Object compile: (String with: Character nbsp) , ' bingo ^self'.
2 perform: (String with: Character nbsp) asSymbol with: nil.
2 perform: #bingo.
Note that a leading nbsp can happen via a copy from web...
I doubt this is an intentional feature.
