problems with expand tabs

Chris Fonnesbecck
Even though I have the following in my .vimrc:

     set expandtab
     set tabstop=4
     set shiftwidth=4
     set softtabstop=4
     set smarttab

I still get tabs embedded into documents that I am editing. I end up
having to search and replace for them before saving documents.
Understandably, this is not good for python editing. Anyone have a
clue as to why my preferences are being overriden?
