Tabs entered in interactive window are not converted to spaces when Insert spaces has been selected. This has not been a problem per se until copy code without prompts arrived.

Suggest convert tabs either when entered or in the clipboard when code is copied.

    Going back to build 209, I still get only tabs in the interactive window.
    Pythonwin uses Idle's built-in tab/space conversions, and indeed Idle
    shows the same behaviour.
    According to this issue on the python tracker:

    http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-bugs-list/2006-October/035603.html

    it's configured to always use tabs in the interactive window now.

    Yes I am not debating the interactive window use of tabs just complaining that copy-paste into a script that uses spaces leaves a bunch of tabs to clean up. I want the paste process to resolve the tabs.
