Leading whitespaces on Sphinx build output

Sorry for nit-picky, but does anyone know why there are whitespaces before copying downloadable files... when building the Docs? As an experiment, I built Sphinx’s own documentation and didn’t see the same output:

When running make html:

mkdir -p build
Building NEWS from Misc/NEWS.d with blurb
/home/rffontenelle/Projects/cpython/Doc/build/NEWS is already up to date
PATH=./venv/bin:$PATH sphinx-build -b html -d build/doctrees -j auto   -W . build/html 
Running Sphinx v7.3.7

I think it may be connected with a progress_message() context manager call before the status_iterator() for downloadable files. copying assets... has 18 characters, exactly as the length of the gap before „copying downloadable files”.
