Subject [BUG] spaces in SSI?

This is not suexec related. It is simply caused by the SSI string parser
removing backslashes. To fix it, either we till people to use "\\ " (I assume
this will work) or we change the backslash removal to only do so when a
character which actually needs escaping follows. I can't say I'm much enamoured
with either method.
