Bug was introduced by commit 70ce7fe3b6caa6128cb6e8bfb0eaaf39f1ebe4ce (therefore it was in development version only).

Forgot to mention:

The tab characters are shown in the server raw output, and the /debug buffer logfile.

1. Tab characters are displayed as a single space, and not expanded.
2. The remainder of the line following the tab character(s) is not displayed if the amount of tab characters is greater than the length of the word following it.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Log onto an IRC network using Weechat
2. Connect a second client (I used mIRC)
3. On the second client, open a query window to the nick running Weechat (or join the same channel on both clients)
4. Send a line of text containing tab characters at the beginning (I copy/pasted the tab characters from Notepad)

Input: T1234 abc (T = tab)
Output: 1234 abc
Input: TT1 abc
Output: <no message text>
Input: TT1234 abc
Output: 1234 abc
Input: TT12 abc
Output: <no message text>
Input: TTTT1234 abc
Output: <no message text>
