There's a post-checkout hook in one of the answers on

stattimeprint() uses ztrftime() and so should be portable across OSes;
%e is implemented by zsh logic and is very explicit in handling
%providing the space unless you used %-e.

I can see that on *old* builds it would fail; when %-<foo> support was
added in 535afe3b by pws on 2009-Mar-02 [26614 + 26615] it looks like it
made %e always strip the space; then in 506c845b on 2009-Jun-26 it was
fixed with 27057:

+       * Greg Klanderman: 27057: Src/utils.c: %e and %f time formats
+       were swapped.

4.3.10 was 2009-06-01.  4.3.9 was in 2008.  4.3.11 in 2010.

So the only release cut with this bug was 4.3.10.

That seems to match your observations?
