If a line starts with a number, period and space, but that line is
within a paragraph (i.e. no blank line above), then I don't think it
should be interpreted as an enumerated list item. If this is what the OP
is referring to, I would argue it is a bug. If it is a 'paragraph'
starting with a number, period and space, then being interpreted as a
list item would be 'normal'.
