One that comes to mind is «wabDo» ("Mach") and «wab Do» ("speed of sound") from qepHom'a' 2016 (first used in the Smithsonian thing).

"As a spelling convention, {wab Do} "speed of sound" is written as two
words. When used as a measurement term ("Mach"), it's written as one
word (wabDo). The pronunciation (and, for that matter, meaning) is the same."

This topic is returning very often, and Okrand seems to be "not at all
picky about that." (email to the mailing list from loghaD, 11/16/14)

I do remember though that in some of his messages, he explicetely stated
when a word needs a space or not. I'd like to collect those, so I
wondered if anyone else has ever asked and received an answer for a word
needing a space?
