bug#237: 23.0.60; kbd returns wrong value

This is a menu item in menu-bar-help-menu:
<describe> <describe-language-environment> <European> <Brazilian Portuguese>
Evaluating this:
(kbd "<describe> <describe-language-environment> <European> <Brazilian
produces the following incorrect result:
[describe describe-language-environment European
 60 66 114 97 122 105 108 105 97 110 80 111 114
 116 117 103 117 101 115 101 62]
After tracing edmacro-parse-keys, the problem seems to be here:
(while (and (< pos (length string))
  (string-match "[^ \t\n\f]+" string pos))
      (let ((word (substring string (match-beginning 0) (match-end 0)))
The sexp (substring "<describe> <describe-language-environment> <European>
<Brazilian Portuguese>" 54 64) returns "<Brazilian", which is only half of the
IOW, the code is not expecting a space char. Which is the problem: the
edmacro-parse-keys code or the definition of the key itself,
<Brazilian Portuguese>, which includes a space char?

This problem is not new with Emacs 23, BTW.
