I've always liked the man feature:
  man -k <search_term>
Which does something like an "apropos" search on man pages.

I used to use this feature often inside of emacs, first doing an
  ESC x man
then at the prompt, entering:
  -k <search_term>

Now, with a recent "cvs emacs" (soon to be called "bizarre emacs", I fear),
I find that I can't type the space after the -k.
Is this supposed to be a feature?  How can I fix it?

It must be doing completion on the option letter.

Type C-q SPC instead of just SPC.
