My current settings are:
status = Spaces Only
counts = 28 (0t/28s/0t+s)
Tab size = 4
indent size = 4

I gather that I have no 'tabs' so why is it that when I close file, exit wing, 
open wing, open the file I get the error about the convert???

Maybe I am missing something?  Maybe I don't understand what you are asking me 
to do?  But I do know I really really dislike what it is doing.
