This issue will bite everyone who touches a keyboard. This fixes, e.g., the following issues: * command not found:  grep (Shell) * undefined local variable or method (Ruby) *

First, do this:

mkdir -p ~/Library/KeyBindings/
vim ~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict

Then paste this:

{
  "~ " = ("insertText:", " ");
}

Save the file.

Quit and reopen applications to apply the new key bindings in DefaultKeyBinding.dict.
