I am not seeing this feature, in fact I don't think I've ever seen  
anything like that. But what I have noticed very often, and what is  
kind of a known issue, is that whenever you select some text with the  
mouse, an extra space is often selected, especially when you select  
from left to right. Maybe this is what you are noticing?

If you really are selecting the word TEST with the keyboard and you  
still get an extra space, then perhaps you have some special input  
managers installed?
