I like spacebar because having both space and bar in one word leaves
less opportunity for the reader to assign random weight to either word
and head off down the path of misunderstanding. No cite; that's just
my own thinking. Scanning through google results seems to indicate
that both ways are heavily used.

I'm sure that someone will be along soon to offer something more
authoritative. ;-)
