Possible NetBeans space insertion bug with tab indentation (?)

NetBeans 6 logo
Hum… it seems there may be a rather annoying tab indentation bug with NetBeans 6…
The problem occurs when you are editing a JSP / HTML file with tab indentation (instead of spaces), and you create a new element on the next line, an extra space is added to the beginning of that new line, making the file look something like below:
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
        <title>JSP Page</title>
        <h2>Hello World!</h2>
		<% // Some scriptlet (tab level manually reset on this line) %>
		 <div>another div</div>
		  <%-- Some comment --%>

    This has been driving me crazy the last few days in my PHP project (which uses the HTML indentation engine). I voted on the issue and, hopefully, it will be fixed soon.

    Glad (well…) I’m not the only one having the problem!  At least the Java indentation engine is not broken – or that’ll ^really^ drive me mad.Just in case anyone’s interested, I’m using EditPlus / Notepad++ for text, JS, HTML / CSS.
