Ah, I see it now as well.

This contradicts with what you ietm 1. above.  The space is needed to nicely 
break the menu when the browser is made smaller.  This is easy to test, by 
making the browser smaller, just try that yourself.
As the links are only shown in the submenu, would it be okay to add the spaces 
only to the top menu?
