Flush left.

For a simpler demonstration of the problem, click the "Quote" button of this very comment.  As rendered here, the "Indented" line is flush left; as quoted in the New Comment box, it retains its indentation.

In the submitter posted a patch between begin and end "verbatim" tags.  As subsequent comments in the report reveal, the patch failed to apply because the space at the beginnings of some lines was stripped out.

But it turns out the space is in fact present.  To verify this, hit the "Quote" button at the top of this comment, and examine the text placed in the New Comment box.  You'll see that many lines of the patch begin with a space character; compare that to how the patch is rendered in the comment itself, and notice that there the spaces are missing.

The bug tracker needs to display "verbatim"-tagged text actually verbatim.  Especially, it cannot strip leading spaces, which are often significant in code, patches, etc. -- the exact sorts of things "verbatim" is designed for.
