Given the cognitive load imposed on the user by the form above the tabs, I'd suggest the positioning of the form within the tab is the least of your worries.
Before they get to the tab, the user has been forced to shift their focus back and forth across the entire width of the page several times.
Aesthetically, my preference is for a top left alignment, but I agree with ChrisF that it doesn't matter much. On the other hand, I would be wary of adding in a background image to "fill the space". This may just add another distraction, drawing the user's attention away from the critical workspace.
Much more important than form alignment on the page is the design of the label/field relationships, and so instead, I'd suggest you take the opportunity to start implementing some form design best practice.
A respected expert on the subject is Luke Worblewski, who advises that
When the time to complete a form needs to be minimized and the data being collected is mostly familiar to users (for instance, entering a name, address, and payment information in a check-out flow), a vertical alignment of labels and input fields is likely to work best.
This seems to apply in this case. You can see an example of vertical label alignment on Luke's post: http://www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?1502
I'd add that, when dealing with repetitive data entry tasks, field/tab order can make a big difference to completion rates and accuracy. You should aim to allow users to avoid switching between mouse and keyboard, and where possible, group the most commonly completed fields, to minimizes the number of fields that need to be skipped in the most common cases.
Focusing on these sorts of issues will, I suspect, have a bigger impact than the alignment of the form as a whole.
