[Users] How to put a horizontal tab character into a filter/processing rule

I want to have a processing/filter definition that uses the tab (HT)
character. So far I haven't found a way to enter it other than copy &
paste a tab character. Even that doesn't work completely though. The
next time you make any kind of change to that rule Claws will change
the "tab" to ":" in the definition. For example, this:

body_part regexpcase "\\/l\\/lt|[a-z][	][a-z][	][a-z]|uniondale"

will become:

body_part regexpcase "\\/l\\/lt|[a-z][:][a-z][:][a-z]|uniondale"

I've tried various versions of "\t", "[\x09]", [\x009]"... no luck.

Is there anyway to do this and have it stay longer than the next edit?
