Neither of the following are printing the tab character. Not sure what 
is going on.

	#debug "0.000000\t0.000000\t0.000000\n"
	#debug "0.000000	0.000000	0.000000\n"

Just a thought: Put two tab characters together in case it is tabing to 
the next space with one.

It works for me with beta.3 and beta.4 (povconsole64)

#debug concat("protected static final double reeferInView = ", 
str(SvrReeferInView, 0, -1), ";\t\t\t// F: ", 
str(SvrReeferInView*fps,4,0), "\n")

gives me

0012000                                           p   r   o   t   e   c

Even better, running that line says

0000000   0   .   0   0   0   0   0   0  ht   0   .   0   0   0   0   0
0000020   0  ht   0   .   0   0   0   0   0   0  cr  nl

Putting two next to each other makes no difference.

A shot in the dark. It does eliminate one possible cause.

If you copy the message pane, the clipboard contents will include the
tab characters alright.

So it's probably an issue rooted in the GUI component used for the
message pane, and my guess is that we probably won't address this one.
