If a DENYTOPIC* variable (e.g. DENYTOPICVIEW) has a trailing space in its value, the value is regarded as empty and the operation is allowed to anybody.

This is because the value's non-emptiness not is checked by $denyText =~ /\S$/, which if false if there is a trailing space.

$ in the matching pattern must be deleted.
