When I select Copy -> Bytes (Printable Text Only), the tabs (0x09) are stripped
from the stream.  I would imagine that all whitespace characters should be
included in the 'Printable Text Only' version of the Copy command.

For example you can see the tabs (especially the one between 'select' and
'max':

(Copy -> Bytes (Offset Hex Text))
.......SNIP......
0160   09 09 09 09 09 09 73 65 6c 65 63 74 09 6d 61 78  ......select.max
.......SNIP......

produces (when using Copy -> Bytes (Printable Text Only)):

.......SNIP......
selectmax
.......SNIP......
