What happens if you set (customize) `whitespace-check-indent-whitespace'
_before_ you toggle `whitespace-global-mode'?

`whitespace-check-leading-whitespace' only serves for removing leading
empty lines from the buffer, hence it doesn't enter here.

I'm not sure what you mean here.  Above you said that it "has never done
what you want" here you talk about a recently introduced bug.  Please
tell me whether and when this worked correctly.  I could try to track
the changes that occurred since then.
