Using the Shell Editor, when entering a closing bracket "}" that has leading whitespace (I used tab) and at least one preceding ascii character (non-space) on the line, it deletes the leading whitespace unexpectedly.

I think this is only happening in ShellEd. I don't see any bugs, other related topics, or anything in Google for this. I have seen an old thread that seems similar for the dltk python editor...but am having trouble rediscovering the page. I also hunted through Eclipse settings (Mars.2) and can't find anything that seems to affect this. I have tested in a few different Eclipse text editors and haven't been able to reproduce this in anything else.

To reproduce:
1) Create a blank shell script and open it with the DLTK "Shell Script Editor".
2) On the first line hit tab a few times.
3) At the end of the tabs, type the character "}"
4) Now type a second "}" and you should see that a leading tab has been removed.
5...) For each subsequent "}" it will continue to delete leading tabs until the all leading whitespace is removed from the line.

Is anyone else seeing this or am I missing something?

Another test case:

Complete through step 3 above:
4) Add a trailing space
5) Type more ascii characters and tabs will be deleted as above for each character.
