Hi rattsang,
from the pdf user manual i can read:
-the spacing slider controls the distance between brush dabs in a stroke
-the min spacing slider specifies the minimum number of pixels between dabs

So the spacing works with percent of the dab size
200%=~distance of one dab between two strokes and 100%=~the dab is directly at the side of the other (with captured brushed, it is a bit different with other brushes)

The min spacing is here for little dab where 200% would not allow enough spacing between strokes. It is useful for dab under 20 pixels (max Min Spacing available) i mean with a dab where the size is 5 would allow only a max spacing of 5 pixels but with the Min Spacing you can set it to 20 pixels.

Hey, i understand at last this concept lol, i wish my explanations are not too confuse for you.
