Noatun does not use the dialog at all, it uses KFMI in its metatag plugin and 
has its own gui for editing tags.

I vote for stripping off spaces inside the KFMI plugin in case the file has 
got an id3v1 tag.

Btw, I do exactly the same in my own plugin (directly uses taglib instead of 
going through slow kfmi).

If somebody wants trailing spaces then shoot him ;)
Really, I see no single case where one would want spaces at the end. Maybe 
more than one space between words (for l33t formatting *g*) but that would 
not be stripped off then.
