Most such problems are caused by mixing tabs and spaces in the same 
file.  Pick one style and be consistent, and you'll be in good shape.

My approach is to always expand tabs.  My tab key simply gets me to a 
convenient column, there never are any tabs in my source files.

(I don't use either notepad++ or pydev, but most editors I have used or 
written can be configured to use spaces)
