nmap output bug?

Hi dev list,

I'm parsing nmap standard output using various techniques, and just discovered an anomaly.  For reasons that are not 
clear to me, sometimes the line that reports an open port contain "<portnumber>/tcp open" with a single space between 
"tcp" and "open", and other times with two spaces between "tcp" and "open".  I can't imagine any legitimate reason for 
it.  Yeah, I should probably be parsing XML instead, but I thought I would throw this out there.
