Yup, they check out.  The only noticable change is that the tabs are
missing.

C-h v <ret>  sh-indentation <ret>
sh-indentation's value is 2

C-h v <ret> indent-tabs-mode <ret>
indent-tabs-mode's value is nil
Automatically becomes buffer-local when set in any fashion.

I thought I remembered this being a big pita and I guess it is...

Actual formatted sample with those vars in place:
======================================
if [ ];then
    if [ ];then
        case $opt in
            t) cmd
            lf  [ ];then 
        cmd
    fi
    ;;
            h) cmd
            if [ ];then
                case $otheropt in
                    a) cmd
                    if [ ];then
                        cmd
                    fi
                    ;;
                    b) cmd
                    ::
                esac
            fi
        esac
        if [];then
            cmd
            ii
        fi
fi
