This has happened to me a few times.
I've however learned to work around it by adding empty HTML comments,
or some such.
I guess less tech-savy users insert a single period or a dash.

I've also often been irritated by the limitation that all <ol> lists
have to start on 1.
and that the a,b.c... and A,B,C... list types aren't supported at all.

Those are bugs - because they show behavior that a normal user does not expect.
