Do you mean c-basic-offset?

This variable is usually buffer-local (i.e. has a (potentially) different
value in each buffer), and is also a "style variable" (i.e., can get
set/overwritten by the CC Mode style system).

Such variables can be tricky.  Can you describe how you set
c-basic-offset, and post anything else relevant from your .emacs.
