I've used a simpler version of .emacs, and what I got was a
blank line, and then on the next line I got a single tab in front
of my "aaaa".  I confirmed that if either of the last two things
in my .emacs are absent, I do not get that behaviour, I simply
get a blank line.

; Switch off any crap the installation has
(setq inhibit-default-init 't)

; Don't let emacs guess what file types I am editting
(setq auto-mode-alist '() interpreter-mode-alist '())

; Always assume text mode
(setq-default default-major-mode 'text-mode)

; Indent whenever you hit enter
(global-set-key [?\C-m] 'newline-and-indent)

BFN.  Paul.
