Do you have t1disasm installed? It comes with the t1utils from Eddie
Kohler. If not, I would install the t1utils, as they are really usefull.
With t1disasm you can then translate your PFB files into human readable
form. Search for 'space' and have a look if the character has a width
definied or not. As I said, I have no problem with producing Type1 fonts
with a space character of nonzero width using ff.
