Define ``beforehand''.  Are you saying that a previous version of
Emacs (which one?) didn't insert those spaces?

It's a kind of a feature: Emacs assumes that you will wish to add
some text to each menu item, and inserts those spaces to align the
beginning of that text.

You can use delete-trailing-whitespace to remove easily it if you
don't want it.
