I've recently upgrated to GNU emacs 22.1.1. It seems that version 22
has changed the behavior of the <tab> key; more often than not
pressing tab will result in a series of spaces being added rather than
a real tab character.
That's been the default in pretty much all modes (things like
makefile-mode obviously excepted) since as long as I remember using
Emacs, and that's since version 18.something.

Yes, it has also happened in the past when. However, it happens much
more frequently in emacs 22. I think I may have found a solution:

  (setq indent-line-function 'indent-to-left-margin)

It seems as if the default value for indent-line-function was changed
'indent-to-left-margin to 'indent-relative at some point; changing it
gets me the behavior I'm used to.

What does `C-h v indent-tabs-mode' say?
