    It seems that if a file contains TAB characters these are not displayed in the @select window, but simply dropped.

    Needless to say, this makes "tab-separated-value" files look rather bad.

    Anyway to get this fixed? (Unless the newer versions already has improved on it) Using a space instead of a tab in the @select window would be ok.

    It can be added that the line that is eventually selected still retains the TAB characters, so functionally it still works even if hard to read the lines to @select from.

    Tabs have never been displayed in @SELECT windows; this is a Windows listbox
    issue, not TCC. (The Windows API ignores tabs.)
