[tex4ht] issue with tex4ht and minted package, extra space added

pygments call creates temporary file with contents like:

\PYG{n}{clear} \PYG{n}{all}\PYG{p}{;} \PYG{n}{close} \PYG{n}{all}\PYG{p}{;}

which is then converted to the following HTML code:

class="ectt-1095"> </span><span
class="ectt-1095"> clear</span><span
class="ectt-1095"> all;</span><span
class="ectt-1095"> close</span><span
class="ectt-1095"> all;</span><br class="fancyvrb" />

It seems that two spaces at the beginning of each line are inserted by
\PYG macro, not by the Python processor.

Best regards,
