Yes, that's a bug.  I'll look into fixing that.  As a work-around you 
can disable "Auto-Enter Spaces" in the Editor > Auto-Editing preferences 
or you could set the Keyboard > Tab Key Action preference for Python to 
"Smart Tab" which allows using the tab key at the end of the line to 
insert tab characters.  Although I'm not personally wild about using 
tabs anywhere and that should perhaps be configurable to place spaces 

I'll look into fixing this.
