Er, no.  You're right, c-context-line-break does indeed remove the
trailing WS, at least on normal code lines.  Sorry about the mistake.

But I don't think I've really understood how this observation fits in
with the bug scenario.  The bug is about the current master's default
binding of <CR> (namely newline) not removing the trailing whitespace
from the line it's typed in.

I think you might be suggesting binding c-context-line-break to <CR> in
CC Mode as a workaround for the problem; or possibly using its ideas to
code up a CC Mode version of newline.

I still think the bug should be fixed in the Emacs core, so that other
modes which want the old line to have trailing spaces removed, yet don't
use electric-indent-mode, will just work.
