?? See above.  Or did you mean something else?  (Though I see that what
I wrote is a bit garbled: it should say "(window-width) has a value of
just 10".)  Anyway, maybe it's less kludgy to introduce a mode line
%-construct for spaces.  Here's a patch for that, which just adapts the
code for "%-".  It seems to works (but so does my other lisp-only
patch).  (Interestingly, lots_of_dashes, and hence lots_of_spaces, has a
length of 140, but that's enough at least for my screen.)
