This is bug. Please report it to the bug tracker. As a workaround you
can enable "Regular Expression" option and search for "_e[ ]" (without
quotes). It will give you same result.
If you need explanation: This is because FindInFiles actually calls
asgrep.exe (found in syn directory) to do the actual search. Search
options are passed via gs.cfg (an INI file), and when strings with
spaces are stored to INI file, spaces are ignored (this is default
behavior of windows functions for reading from INI file).
