Yeah, I hate it when Eclipse starts to put my case statements on the wrong indentation level.

I think I know what he means: unfortunately, Descent doesn't seem to pay attention to that setting when you're just typing code. If I try to type

void foo(int bar) {
    switch (bar) {
        case 1:

I instead get:

void foo(int bar) {
    switch (bar) {
    case 1:

Note the indenting of 'case'. This is with the checkbox for [Indent] "'case'/'default' statements within 'switch'" turned on. And it happens whether or not I press 'tab' before typing 'case'. (If I use tab to manually indent the 'case', it *unindents* the moment I hit 'e'!)

Pressing Ctrl-Shift-F fixes the indentation; this seems to be an auto-indenting issue, not a formatter issue.

(Descent, Eclipse 3.2.2 / M20070212-1330 (Ubuntu version: 3.2.2-5ubuntu2))

P.S. Mike replied:

Exactly. It seems to do it only with the first case, however.
