Using joe 3.5 built on Cygwin with the cygbuild script... Space characters (ascii 9 and 32) always indent on paragraph reformat (^K J). This is a serious nuisance when editing plain text files that have indented paragraphs. Narratives (eg. fiction stories) that contain dialogue usually have many one-line paragraphs. If paragraph reformat wraps any of those to a second line, the second line will also be indented. I have not found a way to turn this behavior off ([un]setting 'cpara', for example, has no effect)-- there seems to be no work-around, other than removing all indentation. Note that this problem seems to affect paragraph reformat only, and not line wrap while entering text.
