'softtabstop' + 'list'

Tobias Klein
Hello group,

when typing with tabstop=8 and softtabstop=4 you need 4 backspaces to
delete 4 tabs - as expected.
but when i add the 'list' option, it only needs 1 backspace to delete 4
tabs.
Is this intentional?

tested with Vim 6.3 under linux

greetings,
tobi

I think this is related to patch 6.3a.022 which fixed a
problem with typing tabs with 'sts' set, but clearly not
when removing them with backspace.
