Any idea how to realise that on the fly?

Maybe it's better to understand what happens from marking a region for copying from in some application to pasting it into GNU Emacs. What is changing TABs to a series of NO-BREAK SPACE characters? KMail? KDE? Is the "buffer" on which KMail works accessible somewhere in the file system? How does it look like (encoding)? Or what happens when you watch the X clipboard and take a copy off it and paste it into another application, a terminal emulation (cat > some file) or paste this or another copy into some stand-alone text editor? How are the original TABs (I presume so) handled? Is KDE missing an option to preserve copied TABs?

GNU Emacs also offers some choices to manipulate what was copied elsewhere and also what was copied off it ... but the defaults don't seem to be so bad outside KDE!
