Because the changed content cannot be determined, I decided to
recalculate all tabstops in the visible area whenever UPDATE_UI is
omitted (except selection changes) or the buffer is switched.

To try it out, copy the attached file lua.init to

Then add the following to ~/.textadept/init.lua:

events.connect('update_ui', function(updated)

events.connect('buffer_after_switch', function()
