I don't see any space appended there.  The last four bytes of
output are 0x20, 0x2f, 0x2e, 0x0a (space, /, ., newline).
Perhaps you're misunderstanding the little-endian nature of
od -x output?

Yes, of course, when 'od' says ' 2f20    0a2e' it means it received:
  0x20 0x2f 0x2e 0x0a
sorry - I'm just trying to understand why your original RE fails -
it isn't because of the spaces !
