      Description

      I've used 2.4 a lot, recently installed 2.6, but not used that much and now playing around with 2.8 beta 1. I discovered the behaviour in 2.6, but since it is still present in 2.8, I decided to file it as a bug, although it may be that some regard this actually as a feature.

      The behaviour I am talking about is within the default plain text editor with the additional support implemented via JavaScript. It happens to me that if I hit the backspace key, it does not delete only the last character, but up to four spaces. This is annoying if I edit a table where I want the columns in the text view as well. Using the key repetition function of the keyboard, it happens frequently that I get a single character too far. If I hit the delete key in such a situation, I have to add three more spaces to go to the originally intended column.

      Please remove that "feature" or make it at least somehow configurable. Thanks.
