Two things:

1. why do you need the explicit tab in the above case?  Is the
auto-indenting not working for you?  That would certainly qualify as a
bug.

2. By default, we bind ctrl-i to inserting an explicit tab for
indentation purposes.  That can be changed to any other key in the
configuration.

Cheers,
