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,
