Yes, but not for security, for usability.

There is nothing worse than a user raising a support issue because their "password doesn't work". 99% of the time they just don't remember it.

Allowing a password to have spaces is more prone to user error, especially when it starts or ends with a space. So I can see why they might not want to allow spaces.

But don't go too far... one site I used recently doesn't allow special characters at all! Only letters or numbers, so this means your password cannot be as complex as you might want it to be (which is definitely a security concern).
