Whose bright idea was it to change gnome terminal (actually vte), so that spaces are no longer underlined?

The two words get underlined, the space character does not.

Does anyone realize just how many terminal applications use underlines to visually indicate text-entry fields? Now, they all disappear, and everything looks like crap.
I can't think of any valid reason for this change in behavior, since
xterm still gets it right -- the space character is underlined. I can't
wait to hear what was the urgent reason for this change that uglifies so
many existing terminal apps.

I wouldn't assume it was a deliberate decision. File a bug report.
