kenward at (Gary Kenward) complains about bogus
indentation after the ? operator when running under OpenWindows 3.0.

It sounds as though Mathematica thinks its hooked to a pipe instead of
a terminal.  When this happens it thinks it is dealing with batch
input.  You can help it understand the real situation by executing
$BatchInput = False
