Hi Tomas,

the whitespace is not cached, as it's not computed by TYPO3, but emitted 
by PHP. When you enable the cache, you should get the whitespace at the 
first hit, every subsequent hit, which is delivered from cache, should 
not contain it.

IIRC typo3conf/localconf.php is included as very last, thus it sounds 
reasonable that the ws is there (when you write that the temp-file had 
it at the end).
Remove the ?> from localconf.php, then this can't happen for that file.

Kind regards
