When in a group chat, any messages by oneself are aligned to the right and not prefixed with the chat nickname.

For some reason the alignment for short messages is only partially to the right. This is different to the alignment in single user chats, where the text is fully aligned to the right of the screen.

A screenshot is attached.

For some reason the 'received' messages passed by smack contain a whole heap of '\t' and whitespace characters. This causes them to be aligned wrong at the middle of the screen.

Single user chat messages do not contain these trailing whitespaces.
