Yes, it has also happened in the past when. However, it happens much
more frequently in emacs 22. I think I may have found a solution:

  (setq indent-line-function 'indent-to-left-margin)

It seems as if the default value for indent-line-function was changed
from
'indent-to-left-margin to 'indent-relative at some point; changing it
back
gets me the behavior I'm used to.

Thanks for your answer, though!
