Wanted to check, if any of you are encountering any IndentationError issues
with the notebook, or is it just me?

I'm using development version of codemirror (corrected as per
README-IPython.rst), and some times I'm encountering:

   IndentationError: expected an indented block

1. with no line numbers or other context information;
2. caused by a mix of '4 spaces' / 'tabs', invisible in the editor;
3. by itself caused by codemirror, which disregards a tabMode:"spaces"

I've temporarily fixed it for myself, by converting all tabs into 4 spaces
during every save.
And saving/reloading the notebook [if I encounter that problem]. But I'm
not entirely happy with that.

Anyone else hitting the same problem?
