I reexamined this, but the change I mentioned would not behave
differently with/without UTF-8 encoding, and have not been able
to reproduce the problem.

yes... my checkin comment before was this:

Savannah #37806 (anonymous) pointed out that I'd broken noalt-tabpos in 9.7u.  
Amend my change slightly to do as it did before for single-byte characters.    
I'd revert the whole change but cannot recall exactly the case that prompted  
me to make the original change - so for the time being, the cursor will always 
be at the beginning of multibyte characters.  

(I've been distracted with other fixes, and intend digging into this and the other Savannah reports before 9.8l)

I've found that this bug happens when file-encoding is set to auto.

agree- it seems to not work.  odd, but I seem to recall this reported a few years ago but thought it was fixed.  back on the to-do list (thanks)

When alt-tabpos is disabled (the default), the cursor over
a tab is incorrectly positioned at the start of the tab
instead of the end.
