Hm, I've tried the usual linux login shell, urxvt, xterm and
konsole. None of them seem to be capable of it, at least not with their
default settings.

Ok, no problem.

It was introduced yesterday and removed on RMS demand some hours
later. ;-)

Nevertheless, I've bound th-complete-or-indent in text-mode, too.

Well, I want to have them in all modes that don't use TAB for a
different purpose than indenting.

I guess you've meant org-cycle there, right?

Well, yes. But if I think about the whole function: I've written it,
because typing `dabbrev-expand' (M-/) is a pain on German keyboards and
I didn't want to lose indenting functionality with tab. But a while ago
I switched to a German Dvorak Typ II layout, where M-/ is easily
accessible. So I'll bint th-complete-or-indent to M-/ globally.
