fq=field:value with spaces

is problematic - it is being parsed as a SolrQueryParser expression.   
It should work if you quote it - fq=field:"value with spaces"

However, as I mentioned earlier today on the list, I think the best  
option for facet narrowing on string fields is this:

    fq={!raw f=field}value with spaces

Of course all of the above need to be URL encoded too.

This explains the problem exactly.  Note how it parsed the second word  
to the text field, not the field you specified.
