I have just tried the above with `emacs-21.3 -q --no-site-file' and couldn't
reproduce your problem.  The ($o_year...) lines gets properly indented
below the previous line.

Could you show us a more complete example where the problem can be
reproduced ?

PS: Yes, the default perl-mode is not as sophisticated as cperl-mode.
Note that the version in the Emacs repository is significantly improved
in some areas (provided you use font-lock).
