Please in your bug reports, do mention the behavior that you see rather
than assume that I will see the same one.  Also, try to explain the
behavior you would have liked to see instead.

What I see is that it jumps to "right after the previous matching case".
Is that what you see?

It's the expected behavior, at least (IOW if it changes, you'll have to
adjust the indentation rules accordingly).

Since "after otherwise" is not a position that corresponds to the end of
a "sexp", the meaning of (forward-sexp -1) is unclear.  SMIE defines
such things in a way I found useful, but admittedly, it might take some
time to get used to it.

What behavior did you expect?
