I believe the parser could be patched to remove leading whitespace from the branch length to solve this.  
There is no check that enforces numerics on the branch length elsewhere.

The newick format does state this reqiurement about whitespace:
" Blanks or tabs may appear anywhere except within unquoted labels or branch_lengths."
