Can't reproduce it here.  I did "emacs -Q foo.c" and then
M-: (setq-default indent-tabs-mode nil) RET
and then C-x h C-M-\ to reindent the whole buffer, and there was no TAB
in sight (and yes, I did make sure that foo.c contains lines that need
to be indented far enough for TABs to be useful).

Note that reindenting the code with indent-tabs-mode==nil will not
*remove* TABs that were there before.

As for your other bug, please report it with M-x report-emacs-bug and
a precise recipe to (try and) reproduce it.
