TL;DR: yes please.

I no longer have your original e-mail but I'll speculate this may have
something to do with flowed messaging. This most recent e-mail you sent
was marked flowed, so it's possible the e-mail you sent your patch in
was marked that way. Thunderbird detects the flowed setting in the
sender's e-mail headers and if it's marked flowed and flowed message
display processing isn't disabled it strips the trailing space. So if
the diff you submit has blank common lines (ie a line with a single
space) those spaces are stripped. There is an option
mailnews.display.disable_format_flowed_support I could try but if
Thunderbird receives an e-mail marked flowed I would expect it to
process it that way.
