C-mode indentation

I am seeing an anomaly in the behavior of C indent in Pretest 21.2.95. (Build: 
GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.0.2195) of 2003-01-30 on EEWANCO-PC).  

If I invoke it with ../bin/emacs -q --no-site-file, load src/alloc.c
from the Emacs build directory, go to line 332, execute Ctrl-C-. BSD to
switch to BSD indent mode, then indent using Ctrl-Alt-\ the structure
definition there, each line is indented eight positions (with a tab). 
Doing the same on Emacs 20.6.1 (invoked with the same command line
options) indents 4 positions.  If I change the offset alist it changes
the indentation, so that part works.  It appears upon further
investigation that the default for c-basic-offset has changed from 4 to
8, but only for BSD style (or at least not for gnu style).  

I checked the NEWS file to see if there was a documented change in the
way indentation works (particularly for BSD style), but I didn't run
across anything.
