bug#4289: 23.1; Incorrect indentation in C, following certain 'case' lab

Subject: bug#4289: 23.1; Incorrect indentation in C, following certain 'case' labels

In Emacs 23.1, I've found an issue with the indentation rules for C
mode.  In some circumstances, following a series of multiple labels,
the second and subsequent statements are not indented properly.  For
example, in the following code:

void foo(int x)
  switch (x) {
  case 1:
  case 2:

  case '3':
  case '4':

the second 'break' statement should be indented by 4 spaces, to align
with the 'printf'.

This problem seems to appear when there are multiple labels (either
normal named labels, 'case' labels, or 'default' labels) in a row,
with no intervening statments, and either the first or the last such
label is a 'case' label with a character constant as its value.

This problem does NOT occur with Emacs 22.3.  It does occur in C++ and
ObjC modes as well.  It affects indentation using either TAB or M-x

A workaround is to place the character constant(s) in parentheses.

This is obviously not a serious problem, but it is a somewhat annoying
one which would be nice to see fixed.
