[ESS] Yet another indentation question: indentation after parenthese

Dear ESS gurus,
I feel like I'm really missing something... I searched heavily on the
net, in the ESS manual, on this list, without finding what I'm looking
for. Basically, when I try to indent some code (with M-C-q), if a line
break occurs in the middle of parentheses or brackets, the next line
will be indented to the first character after the parenthesis. How can I
get rid of this, and get a 'normal' 4 spaces indentation? (this is, I
think, the behaviour of the R parser)
It really drives me crazy as I tried a .emacs with only this, as
recommended in the R coding standards:
(ess-set-style 'C++ 'quiet)
;; DEF GNU BSD K&R C++
;; ess-indent-level 2 2 8 5 4
;; ess-continued-statement-offset 2 2 8 5 4
;; ess-brace-offset 0 0 -8 -5 -4
;; ess-arg-function-offset 2 4 0 0 0
;; ess-expression-offset 4 2 8 5 4
;; ess-else-offset 0 0 0 0 0
;; ess-close-brace-offset 0 0 0 0 0
(setq ess-nuke-trailing-whitespace-p t)
I also tried playing with an empty .emacs, with 'toggle-truncate-lines'
(before I understood what it was about), 'auto-fill-mode' and
'fill-column', which does not address my problem but allow me to
automate the indentation... So far, I'm lost in the dark.
Any hint will be very welcome (even a RTFM that I totally missed)!
