Create a user name with RTL characters only.
Between the links for your user page and for your talk page there will be no space.

I tried usernames containing RTL characters both with and without spaces inbetween.
I could not reproduce the error neiter at FiverAlpha (
) Nor at [[:en:]]

tried both:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915
and *Netscape*
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20051012

Adding "testme" keyword, as this is years ago and the test wiki no longer exists.
