Yes, I believe the original bug report was that o and O didn't match 
what vi does because we were auto-indenting rather than copying the 
existing indent on the line you started on.  You can get the 
auto-indentation (assuming default Tab Key Action preference) by 
pressing Tab after 'o'.  It's possible this is an area where different 
vi users will disagree on what we should be doing.
