The super-fast (and very accurate) code completion is killer, so please don't get rid of that (been reading the Clang threads a bit, and while Clang is incredibly cool, it'd be a sad day if Qt Creator's code completion became as slow as visual studio's).

Yes, the second line with "b;" is a continuation line, which we indent by 2x indent-width. You can change this for conditions and assignments, but not (yet) for return statements. So please file a feature request on bugreports.qt.nokia.com.
