openSUSE 11.3 is way out of support. Why not install 12.3? The facct taht 11.3 is not supported anymore also means that very few people here have it running, thus very few people will be able to cjeck what happens when they try this on their own system.
Do you do this loged in on the console, or are you using a desktop environment.? When the latter is the case, you should of course tell this and also which one you use. All these things can be different per DE used.

only the vBulletin/html based forum software removed the invisible
characters…as you can see above the space created remains in nntp!
i took a screen shot of what a space and what a shift+space looks
like in hex, and both appear to be “20” in hex, so they look to be
identical both in ascii and hex… i don’t know what they look like
in just ones and zeros…
and, i can’t post the images of my experiment because susepaste.org
just said to me (rudely and incorrectly): “An Error Was Encountered”
and “You are spammer!!!”
In my case a Shift+space just creates a space. If on 12.3 you may have been hit by the choice for US International as the default keyboard. Change this in Yast to “US English” and the unwanted keycombo’s will disappear.

Why don’t you create a file with only those invisible spaces, and then
have a look at it with “hexdump -C file”? Then you can post here that
line inside code tags and we can see what character it actually is.
And what editor and what desktop you are using might help us. I tried
with gedit, and I could not reproduce your problem. Maybe your editor
uses shift-space for “unbreakable space”, which is something useful on

In a terminal says nothing about system-wide. Opening “konsole” for example uses the user’s settings. Another thing is, if this happens in the konsole. That would mean it’s systemwide. Could you tell us a bit more about the keyboard itself?

i’m not at all sure it is turned on…that is to say: i can’t
duplicate your problem on my 11.4, so i must wonder what might be
different on yours…
what desktop environment (if any) are you using?
are you getting these results on a local machine?
with no VM involved?
maybe hardware to allow one keyboard to switch between two computers?
(try taking the switch out of the path)
if USB keyboard, try a different port…
try a different keyboard…
do you have an application in your menu system (see, i don’t even
know if you have a menu system–because you have not declared if you
had a DE or even X) named something like Configure Desktop, or
Personal Settings? if so see if you can go something like Common
Appearance and Behavior > Shortcuts and Gestures, and search
thoroughly to see if Shift+Space is turned on to do something…if
so, turn it off…
last but by NO means unimportant: openSUSE 11.3 reached end-of-life
in January 2012 [cite: https://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime] and has
received NONE of the hundred or so security updates which have been
distributed then…and as such is in danger of being owned by a
kracker if exposed to untrusted nets–strongly advise you to not do
take it off the network or upgrade to a supported version (11.4
Evergreen, 12.2, 12.3 or Tumbleweed…
on the other hand i think there may also be an upgrade path from
openSUSE 11.3 to SUSE Linux Enterprise, if you need a longer term
