leading space bug

Working on corrections from daily index, and there is a consisten bug/glitch relating to the problem with leading spaces in the surname, which causes the record to sort to the top of the alphabet instead of its place in regular alpha list.
From the site index page:
Is an example. 
1. Open it first in the regular new record screen, and it looks like it is OK, then open it in the edit frame or new transcriptioin screen,  again it looks ok. But if you open it in the old transcription screen and open edit, it will clearly show the leading space in the surname field. 
This bug shows up in names at the top of the daily site index listing, and almost any day that I edit, there will be a dozen or so of this kind of error. Easy to fix if you know how, but also illustrates the need for the old transcription screens.
