And, here...
This is puzzling.
On an older Ubuntu 10.04 system I still use (I know, I know...) I
get _no_ response.  But the return code appears correct:

address@hidden:~$ uname -a
Linux nix4 2.6.32-39-generic #86-Ubuntu SMP Mon Feb 13 21:47:32 UTC 2012 i686 
GNU/Linux
address@hidden:~$ bash -version

address@hidden:~$ echo $?
0
address@hidden:~$ "a nonexistent command with spaces"
address@hidden:~$ echo $?
127
address@hidden:~$

However on my FreeBSD VPS it works as expected:

[jonz~]uname -a
FreeBSD xxx.xxxx.net 10.1-RELEASE-p6 FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE-p6 #0: Tue Feb 24

[jonz~]echo $?
0
[jonz~]"a nonexistent command with spaces"
-bash: a nonexistent command with spaces: command not found
[jonz~]echo $?
