Hmmm, I don't notice random spaces.  I'll play with it.

Error message?

If it's not editable, the suggested structures should have index.php/
prepended so that PATH_INFO is used instead of .htaccess.  If you use a
custom structure, you're own your own.

The theme will be reset if you visit the Presentation page.

$wp_rewrite is not available until just before the 'init' action.

Much of that is deferred or won't fix.  If we waited until the bug
tracker were empty, we would never release again.  If you see a bug that
you think is "must have" for 2.0, mention it here and we can discuss
including it in 2.0.
