data: Fix whitespace on _remove operations
We have some slightly odd behaviours with the current implementation of _remove operations. For example: TEST = " A B" TEST_remove = "C" would trigger TEST to become "A B" even thought it doesn't contain "C". In particular, this means that an inactive remove operator added in a bbappend could change the task checksum which is not desireable. Fix the operation to preserve whitespace, adding new tests to make this explict and test further corner cases. Also update the manual to match.
