(setq default-tab-width 2)
Even with this setting, I still get monstrous 8-character tabs.

        Default value of `tab-width' for buffers that do not override it.
        This is the same as (default-value 'tab-width).

Are you using it in a buffer that does *not* overwrite your default by using some minor mode?

If are in doubt whether your init file ist read in, then make it start with a

        (message "My init file starts here.")

and finish it with:

        (message "My init file ends here.")



Make it simple, as simple as possible but no simpler.
