Changing tab behavior in Python Interactive mode

I've noticed that when running Python in interactive mode (via cmd on
windows), the first time I hit tab it will move 4 spaces to the right,
however each new tab will move 8 spaces instead of 4. Why this
inconsistent behavior? And how could I change this to be consistent
and always move only 4 spaces?
