Bug Description

There was a bug in a weechat script in my ~/.weechat/python/autoload, which triggered apport's exception hook. The apport hook failed with

Error in sys.excepthook:

TabError: inconsistent use of tabs and spaces in indentation

which highligts two problems:

- the 'queue' weechat script is in sys.path and shadows a standard library module
- it is using mixed tabs and spaces for indentation, which is forbidden in Python 3
