I had trouble with this Indentation Manager. In the past it broke the code
not properly transforming between spaces and tabs. So I'm pretty scared 
these day to use it. But then when I edit source with mixed tabs and spaces
these blue lines show up and actually it's quite annoying. ;-) Is there a
way to disable these blue lines?

I prefer tab=4 spaces setting. Standard setting is tab=8 spaces. So I'm 
wondering whethere this affects tab/space conversion by indentation manager, 
which can lead to broken code.
