Summary0015459: Non Breaking Dash gives hyphen followed by space
DescriptionWhen I insert a Non Breaking Dash into text, I get a hyphen followed by a space. Line breaking is suppressed, as desired, but the space character is very inappropriate. The space appears on the screen in Scribus and also in an exported PDF file.

A subsidiary question is why it's called Non Breaking Dash in the GUI when it should be Non Breaking Hyphen.
Steps To ReproduceInsert a Non Breaking Dash into text.
Additional InformationIf I want, for example, '4.00-GHz CPU', in the .sla file it shows up as
                <ITEXT CH="4.00"/>
                <ITEXT CH="GHz CPU"/>
I presume that the line break after <nbhyphen/> in the XML is being interpreted as white space.

Thank you.
