It is true that in the RFC the Request line is made up of single spaced
elements, but if you look at appendix b
(http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1945#page-55) it says 
"   Clients should be tolerant in parsing the Status-Line and servers
   tolerant when parsing the Request-Line. In particular, they should
   accept any amount of SP or HT characters between fields, even though
   only a single SP is required.
"
