This is not a bug. The tabs and spacing change because the font is
different between Gedit and the application you pasted the text into.

Gedit using monospaced fonts by default because those fonts show system
and code files consistently. Applications like Abiword use proportional
fonts that look very nice in most cases, but have irregular spacing.

Some applications permit you to format part of the text. For example,
you can select the pasted text in Abiword and change the font to the
same font used by Gedit to preserve the presentation.
