No I haven't, but I did just look it over.

It sounds a bit different than what I've been experiencing.  From
memory, it seems like when I'm editing code in a function, it loses the
idea that I am in a function and loses a level of indentation for all
code below a certain point.  Sometimes going up a few lines before the
problem and re-indenting every line fixes it, but it can take a couple
of tries to get it to actually work.  Other times I have to go to near
the start of the function and re-indent everything.  Sometimes nothing
works and I just re-indent it manually.

I don't want to complain without offering a solution, but in the 15+
years I've been using emacs I have *never* had a problem with C code
indentation and have grown to rely on it to help me find syntax errors
in my code.  Why it has unreliable is beyond me when it's worked so well
for so long...I hope this wasn't just change for the sake of change.
