What kind of terminal are you using (X11, console, serial, etc)?  I have 
noticed similar problems when running emacs under (actual) vt220 and vt420 
terminals.  I finally traced down the thing to a problem with the terminals' 
tab hardware setup (tabs should be set to 8 character columns),

Hope this helps,
