Example for ignoring non-breaking spacesin fields

If you cross reference to a text with non-breaking spaces, this non-breaking spaces will be handled as "normal" breaking spaces in the resulting field.

This is ugly if you reference to non-breaking-spaced names like "E. Domingos de Sousa" or "C. H. Schulz" an the result is

"... E. Domingos 
de Sousa"

"... C. 
H. Schulz"

Thanks Stefan. Confirm the behaviour.
(Imagine you've just learned someone of Non breaking spaces and the next step is reference fields ;\ )

See the same in version 3.3.0

The same happens when you have a header based on the Chapter. A non-breaking space in the chapter text will be a normal space in the header. I get a header like this:

Stephanie - Chapter 13: Two Dinners, a Send Off and a Business Plan, Part
