Line 1-3 were indented automatically by pressing Tab. In line 4 I inserted
6 spaces manually. This is what I would expect to find in line 3 too. But
at my surprise there are 3 tab chars in line 3. Line 2 was indented
automatically with 1 space.

1. So why is line 3 indented with 3 tabs instead of 6 spaces?
2. How can I prevent this?
3. Why does a tab have a width between 1 and 2 spaces?
4. How can I prevent this misalignment?

org-block face has fixed-pitch.
