Re: cperl-mode inserts TAB despite indent-tabs-mode

I'm trying to fix this bug, and am not getting very far.  However,
I have at least located the code that is inserting a tab:
fill-comment-paragraph (CVS version 1.170), line 814.  That code
looks suspicious to me:

                (if has-code-and-comment
                    (concat (make-string (/ (current-column) tab-width) ?\t)
                            (make-string (% (current-column) tab-width) ?\ )
                            (buffer-substring (point) comin))
                  (buffer-substring (line-beginning-position) comin))

It seems to be inserting tabs unconditionally, rather than honoring
`indent-tabs-mode'.  Is this correct?

But users will not now with glad cries glom on to a language that
gives them no more than what Scheme or Pascal gave them.
