[ESS] indentation not working if parentheses are already closed

Dear ess community,

usually the automatic indentation in ess works like a charm. I have 
however, experienced that it does not work in case I add a newline and 
the matching parenthesis is already closed. E.g. hitting Return after

foo = function() {

would indent the following line correctly, but placing the cursor 
between the two curly braces here:

foo = function() {<cursor here>}

and hitting enter, results in a non indented new line. Is this a bug? Or 
intended? Or is there a way to switch it off?

I ask as I just installed smartparens.el which creates balanced 
parentheses automatically and, hence, would switch off the really 
helpful indentation behavior.


P.S. Sorry for crossposting to gnu-emacs-help, ... I realized after 
submitting the mail that ess-help would be the more appropriate list.
