I believe that's the normal behavior: What you see printed, with hanging indents, is essentially the same thing you see if you directly enter the long string with the original Print expression. That's why, for example, when you write a func::usage message for a function of your own, if you want to avoid the hanging indent you need to insert explicitly new-line characters.
