Since there aren't supposed to be any spaces in dbxrefs, it would be helpful if there were an error message (fatal error?) when a space was included in a dbxref.

    There is already a warning message about this, though it's a bit cryptic--it says "Dbxref of [term] contains non-URI characters (such as >).
    If others want me to make this a fatal error rather than just a warning, I can do that.

    I don't remember getting a warning, but it was a long time ago when we were having a problem with this, and we had a lot of errors back then. I have cleaned up all our error messages, so I will notice it now.

    I just tested it, and it does indeed show the warning, although even with auto-commit on, I still have to click on another term before the warning shows up. I can live with that.

    No need to change anything.
