Yes, I tried on several files. I've disabled the modeline plugin too
but with no avail.|
To see if something in my environment is affecting this setting, I created a new user account and tested gedit in the new account. And guess what? The tabs are correctly expanded to spaces!.
Now I have to figure out what is it in my environment that is causing this issue.
Thanks for your help.
Are there any

One problem I noticed is that even though I have set the editor preference to insert spaces instead of tabs, the text still contains tabs. There doesn't seem to be any way to get rid of tabs except to insert spaces manually. I compiled and tested the latest stable release (2.18.2) but the problem persists. Any help to solve this issue is very much appreciated.Did you try it on several files or on only one ? Because the modeline plugin can override your settings if the file contains directives about formatting.
