Wordfast (or Trados?) suppresses spaces between segments after the cleanup

I have a regular client who is complaining that the spaces between my segments disappear after the cleanup.

In other words :
I work with Wordfast Classic 6.01g and I always send a .bak file to my client with my uncleaned translation. After she proofreads my translation with Trados and cleans it, the spaces between the segments sometimes disappear, resulting in all the sentences being stuck together.

Has anyone ever had the same issue? If so, did you figure out how to solve it?

Thanks for your help!

Wordfast always conserves the spaces between segments (sentences) automatically. Is this specific to your version? I switched back to version 5.xx because of some quirks with version 6.xxx.
