I can confirm on linux RC2, but 2.79b work same. IMO This is not a regression or bug, it may be a feature request

I don't think it can be considered as a bug. TAB key has always been set to switch between edit mode and object mode, and a text object can't really be considered as a full text editor. Tabulations can be replaced with spaces eventually. As this is not a bug, and in order to try to keep the bug tracker with high priority tasks, I take the liberty to tag this report as invalid.
