I've run into an oddity while using Global Update that is generating extra manual editing of records. One of my cataloguers has been adding a space after the period in the subject and genre MARC fields. Whenever I try to global update a subject or genre her bib records will not process. I get a listing of "No changes detected." All the records have her initials and there is always an extra space at the end of the subject field.

I've tried all sorts of different things in Global Update to resolve this but had no luck. Has anyone else run into this? Do I have to resort to regex to get rid of these spaces?
