Tabs and simple tables

Hi all.  I just upgraded to lout 3.02 a few days ago, so bear with me.

I'm fooling around with tabs in normal text (i.e., not inside a @CP or
a @Tab), and while the first tab seems to line up properly, second and
third columns don't look quite right.  F'rinstance, I want to do a
simple 2-column table without using the table package like so:

@Display lines @Break {
{}      First   The first thing I did was eat figs.
        Second  Next on the agenda was making pastries.

The "First" and "Second" are lined up vertically, but the sentences
aren't.  Yet inside a @CP, you can set tabin and tabout such that
lining things up with tabs looks nice.  Why isn't this the default in
normal text?  Or can someone get this to work?
