Re: Buglet expanding keywords

It has bothered me since I started using Subversion in April. I have to
always remember to have the extra space after the colon. That get's
annoying after a while, as I have always typed "$Id:$" for years, and
now I have to change that.

BTW, I pointed out this problem a long time ago, but someone (Karl)
thought it was supposed to work even without the space.
