If you tried what was mentioned as the answer, and it didn't work,  
you need to _show_ us what you did, since it's likely you made a  
mistake! :)

In that case, it would sound like you did make a Ruby specific  
preference, but had the value reverted, i.e. set it to _always_ use  
tabs rather than spaces.

Best to create a new bundle, name it Custom, and make a new entry  
there with your stuff. Mainly so that it's clear what you did  
yourself, and what's the default.
