Emacs 23.2.

I find that none of the coffee-indentors-bol actually match coffee-indenters-bol-regexp while editing except when the line containing the indenter was itself at an indentation level of 0.

For example, this is the unaltered coffee-mode indentation behavior that I observe:

if happy
  if know it
  claphands() # Shouldn't this have been indented?

I find that I can make it behave as I want it to if I remove the ^ from coffee-indenters-bol-regexp, as so

;; Works
(defun coffee-indenters-bol-regexp ()
  (regexp-opt coffee-indenters-bol 'words))

instead of

;; Broken
(defun coffee-indenters-bol-regexp ()
  (concat "^" (regexp-opt coffee-indenters-bol 'words)))

Based on the ELisp manual, I think that my replacement is correct when using the looking-at function.

Has anyone else actually observed this problem? It's just so fundamental that I reasoned it must be a problem with my particular setup...
