 Somebody seems to have been so clever to turn the common space into a
 narrow no-break space (UTF8: 0xe280af, U+202F) after certain character
 combinations, for instance: "a && b" is turned into "61 20 26 26 E2 80 AF
 62 0A" (hex) while it should be "61 20 26 26 20 62 0A". Same for "a + b".

 This is utterly annoying when trying to write and compile code for
 instance, gcc does not like the narrow no-break space at all...

 The issue is gone when setting the keyboard language to English or the
 classic German layout. The issue appears both on the command line with
 various terminals (tried: lxterm, gnome-terminal with bash/zsh) and
 graphical UIs like gedit.
