## fill paragraph curly braces bug?

 From: Mark Senn Subject: fill paragraph curly braces bug? Date: Wed, 16 Apr 2008 13:12:07 -0400

Not sure if this is a bug or a feature.  Do you know offhand?

emacs-version gives "GNU Emacs 22.2.1 (sparc-sun-solaris2.10, X toolkit, Xaw3d
scroll bars) of 2008-04-09 on breakwater.ecn.purdue.edu".

As for as I know this is a normal install.

No whitespace at end of lines.
No blank lines.

Doing M-x fill-paragraph gives

I did a quick web search and didn't see anything about the
indentation.  Xemacs didn't indent the lines within the curly braces.

Thanks for Emacs.
