Didn't mean to offend anybody (sorry if I did though). Just wanted to
(strongly) express that - with respect to bug 33041 - this *is* a major issue
as it severely impairs the proposed solution/workaround.

The current behavior is really odd: If you align text to tab at 5 cm and then
replace the 2 cm page margins with a 2 cm padding (for the sole purpose of
making the background full-page), then the horizontal ruler will move left by 2
cm *including* the tab marker while the text itself stays in position
(*including* the text aligned to that tab). In effect, all ruler-based text
markers (idents, tabs, etc.) are now visually "out of sync" with the actual
text, which I consider more of a bug than an enhancement.

However, I am fine with Stuart's idea to make this an optional (switchable)
feature that can be set as default for new documents on a per-user basis. But
it should definitely be fixed.
