I suspect the utf8accents.sty definition of \ss expands to \char"00DF. 
This should have \relax added at the end, to prevent \char consuming an 
optional following space when it scans the number (standard TeX 
number-scanning behavior).

If I'm guessing right, then I think Ross has fixed these issues in his 
latest version (perhaps not posted yet).
