Ok, now I see what's going on -- I didn't try TAB in enough places.
It works fine if you're _after_ some change-log text (because the
preceding text will basically always start with a tab), but it screws up
if you're directly after a change-log header.

Now I agree, the new behavior is annoying, because it doesn't do the
right thing at the left-margin.

Something like the following seems appropriate to me:

(defun change-log-indent ()
  (let ((cur-indent (current-indentation)))
    (cond ((> (current-column) cur-indent)
           (insert ?\t))
          ((= cur-indent 8)
           (move-to-column cur-indent))
           (indent-to-column 8)))))

(set (make-local-variable 'indent-line-function) 'change-log-indent)

Run away!  Run away!
