Different terminal emulators handle this differently.
Testing using just the echo command and then selecting the text, the following
emulators displayed individually-selectable spaces:
aterm, eterm, rxvt, xterm, Konsole
The following emulators displayed tabs as a single multiple-character-width
rxvt-unicode, Terminal (xfce's), gnome-terminal.

This seems like an artifact of old terminal emulation which konsole hasn't
forsaken for a more modern convention especially when compared to the handling
of double-width characters.
