There was a bug in my code (typo in a variable name). Query parameters
do handle tabs just fine.

I've been doing SQL in Livecode for ... many years .. but never tried
query parameters before.

I am using SQLiteAdmin 1.3.6 (and generally love the tool!). I did just
notice, when using it to help debug this issue, that I could not paste
text from the clip board into a field when entering a new record.
