Arrow Kate Automatic Indentation Quirk

I love kate and I use it for all my Python coding but there is a quirk in the automatic indentation that can be quite annoying. I'll illustrate my problem by explaining the steps I take to write this little Python script:

def greet(name):
	print "Hello, %s" % name

First, I type def greet(name): and press <Enter>.

Kate recognizes the Python function and automatically indents the next line.

I proceed by typing print "Hello, %s" % name and pressing <Enter>.

As expected, Kate throws in an automatic indentation so you can continue the function.

But my function is done here so I press <Backspace> to unindent and press <Enter>.

To my surprise, Kate indents again and I have to press <Backspace> once more to begin typing greet("cuboidz").

So basically, it's annoying to insert blank lines...

Now, can I avoid this problem without losing the benefits of automatic indentation ?
