Interesting. It would perhaps be helpful to show the actual
RewriteRules so that we could see where that key is coming from. I
have a couple suggestions:

1. Use a different key where the space is properly encoded. For
example, THE_REQUEST is a variable that often contains a more "raw"
version of the requested path (probably including %20 in place of the
space here).

2. Have mod_rewrite replace the space with something else before
looking in the map.
