A string is an sexp.  " " is a string containing a single space.

Emacs sees on the left side of point, a sexp: " ", and on the right side
of point, another sexp: f.  It swaps them.  That's what the command

[Maybe, as Richard mentioned, it should be more friendly by detecting
that it's inside a string and do... something... in that case (what??),
but detecting that is not particularly trivial (and so is not a suitable
change just before a release).]

Come now, if we were really planning to harm you, would we be waiting here,
 beside the path, in the very darkest part of the forest?
