There is a problem with whitespace-cleanup, when called before
whitespace-turn-on.  The buffer-local variable
whitespace-indentation-regexp doesn't get updated to correspond to the
buffer-local value of indent-tabs-mode.  This means that even if
indent-tabs-mode is nil, a line with text following a single tab
character will not be converted into a line of text following 8 space
characters when whitespace-cleanup is called.  There is a simple
work-around -- just turn whitespace on and off again to set the
buffer-local variables:

(defun my-whitespace-cleanup ()
  "Fixes a bug in whitespace-cleanup in which buffer-local
indent-tabs-mode is not respected."
  (whitespace-turn-on) ;; sets buffer-local variables
  (whitespace-turn-off) ;; don't actually want the mode to be on

Here are instructions to replicate the problem:

Start up with no .emacs.  Set indent-tabs-mode to nil.  Make sure
'indentation is in whitespace-style.  Insert a tab character into a
buffer with no spaces after it, e.g. the line could be "\tfoo".  Run
whitespace-cleanup in the buffer.  Note that the tab character is still
there.  Now run my-whitespace-cleanup.  Note that the tab character has
been replaced by spaces.

The fact that indent-tabs-mode is buffer-local is important.  For
example, makefile-mode sets it to true since tabs are a necessary part
of the syntax of make files.

No need.  Next time, please try to keep the bug list in the CC's, so
that I know whether to close the bug.  Thanks.
