joe Autoindent features fails to function
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:37:56 EDT

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. joe test.txt
2.Place a few tabs on a line and then type some text after the tabs.
3. Press CTRL-T followed by I to enter autoindent mode.
4. Press enter to go to the next line.
5. The cursor will wrongly go to column 1 instead of under the previous line

Fixed in joe-2.9.7-1
