Perform the following exercise with an emacs under X (or probably some
other window system) and with emacs -q -nw:

Go to the scratch buffer:

Then do:

M-:  (put-text-property 4 5 'display '(space :align-to 30))

In the regular Emacs, the "T" gets replaced by a bunch whitespace, as
expected, but for emacs -nw, nothing happens, although C-u C-x = on
"T" shows that it really has the correct display property, it just has
no effect.

Does anybody know whether this is actually _supposed_ to work?
