Hum... I agree. I'll take a look at this but this kind of bad formatting
error are detected using a set of regular expressions, not by analyzing
the abstract syntax tree where formatting details have been removed, and
so it's not easy to distinct between the unary and binary >> operator. 
I'm not sure it's worth complicating existant regexps to handle this...
However a patch would be welcome ! ;o)
