I can kindof see why this was introduced. Presumably, it is an
indication that the TAB key has been used while the file from which I
copied was being written.


But I am not sure if this is a desirable feature, or not.

it is

I can easily think that, if I want to copy a block of C code from one
file to another using the mouse, I would feel quite frustrated if this
is what actually happens with every line where the tab key got used.

just mark the text within mcedit before marking it with the mouse.

but yes, this needs a fix. ctrl-w was supposed to toggle this
*temporarily*, just like ctrl-s toggles syntax highlighting (not
temporarily, which is a bug, imo). more on this can be found in the
respective patch tracker entry.
