 I am sorry, I should clarify. The indentation is in the source file i.e. tab 
or similiar whitespace characters which are being read as ^^I by Latex.
As such, no indentation happens in the outpur but \Psi (i.e. the character Psi 
)  is printed whereever there was an indentation is in the source file. As 
you can now imagine, it'll look pretty poor for verbatimed text.
 If you could have a look at the log file, maybe it'll give some hint.
