index=_internal

| stats... 
| table ...

Every way in 6.5 version there is an indentation of all source's tags with the only exception of searches.
If you want to indent also searches (I usually do it!) you have to manually do it.
Fortunately from 6.5 indentation remains also if I enter in Panels search modify, instead in the previous version if you do this you lose indentation.
