Bug#583232: konsole: Konsole copies tab characters as spaces

Package: konsole
Version: 4:4.4.3-1
Severity: normal

Konsole copies tab characters as spaces. This makes pasting
tabularly-formatted data into OpenOffice difficult.

To reproduce:
echo -e "a\tb"

Copy the resulting output

run xxd, and paste the resulting output on the console (into xxd's
standard input)

[bloom@zuni CORPUS_huliu]$ echo -e "a\tb"
a       b
[bloom@zuni CORPUS_huliu]$ xxd
a       b
0000000: 6120 2020 2020 2020 620a                 a       b.

(I would hope to see xxd give the output
0000000: 6109 620a                                a.b.
