Seen on: Komodo Edit, version 9.3.2, build 16460, platform win32-x86.
Built on Thu Dec 10 22:21:38 2015.

While trying to figure out what turned out to be issue #875, I set the number of spaces indentation setting in current file preferences to 0 (by clearing the box and hitting 'ok'; attempting what I thought might be "inherit from main preferences").
This causes issues that manifest themselves as being unable to dedent a code section by pressing backspace, as it will raise an exception (unsurprisingly the result of a div by 0 error) such as this:

ERROR:xpcom:Unhandled exception calling 'int8 * doCommand(in string);'

The issue here is we should outright not accept 0 as a setting.

fix: prefs: Prevent tab width from being set to zero - fixes #1009
This will prevent division by zero errors later.
