#571 autoindenting 'too smart'

severe bug

Here what I want to type in the edit area ([TAB]
denotes TAB key pressing):


the problem is that jedit gets too smart and behaves
that way:

I type 1st line. It's ok. I press ENTER. the carret
gets autoindented and positioned belof "for". I press
[TAB], and want to type "{". But before "{" appears,
jedit moves carret 'one tab' back and places my bracked
below for's "f", which wasn't my intention. Since it
does that every time I put brackets my way, I have to
move cursor back and insert a TAB before opening
bracked. Morever, I had to do the same for closing one,
and that's hell annoying.

    You can edit the java.xml file and incomment the
    indentOpenBrackets and indentCloseBrackets properties from
    the PROPS section to achieve this behavior. I will make auto
    indent more configurable in the future.
