Every time I open a file, it sets the tabs at 8 spaces, and I set it to 3.  Then
the next file I open has the tabs set at 8, and I have to set it back to 3, and
so on, and so on.

How do I get it to stay at 3 spaces?

I've only had this problem since I upgraded to Windows 7.

Windows edition:
   Windows 7 Ultimate

System:
   Manufacturer: Intel
   Processor: AMD Turion 64 Mobile Technology ML-37
   System type: 32-bit Operating System

POV-Ray version:
   3.6.2.msvc9-sse2.win32

Are you setting the tab size via the "Text"/"Tab Size..." setting?

Try the "Options"/"Editor Window"/"Editor Preferences..." menu instead. 
Here you can set the tab size on a per-file-type base.

Note that this setting does not affect currently open files. Also note 
that POV-Ray remembers the tab size of the most recently used files. You 
can wipe out POV-Ray's corresponding memory by deleting the 
HKCU\Software\POV-Ray\v3.6\POV-Edit\Recent\* registry entries. (Not sure 
if you also need to delete the ...\POV-Edit\Older\* and 
...\POV-Edit\Open\* entries.)

I did that.

However, the problem seems to have resolved spontaneously.  I don't know what
happened or what I did right, but it's behaving now.

Maybe related to the Most Recently Opened list?
