When heredoc bodies are preceded by spaces, but the body itself contains a tab, sometimes the tab in the resulting heredoc gets converted to spaces. The attached test file demonstrates 5 failing cases (with a total of 10 tests) and one passing case (with one test). I’ve already submitted a pull request to roast ( I will merge it once I get an RT number.
