Maybe it has to do something with the window manager.

But still to test I would like to bind c-spc to something else.

and I would like to know how to it so that it works under X.

This is odd because generally people have the opposite problem: typing
`C-SPC' works fine under a window system, but in a terminal (or terminal
emulator within a window system) they have to resort to `C-@'.

Does the problem occur when your friend starts Emacs with no local
customizations (emacs -q --no-site-file)?  What happens when she types
`C-h k C-SPC', then `C-h l' in both environments (i.e. with and without
the -nw command line option)?
