I can't tell you why it happens, but I have a suggestion. Have you
tried longlines.el? It's an add-on that word-wraps correctly without
leaving hard newlines/carriage returns. The only time I ever use fill
functions anymore is when writing responses to newsgroups, since some
newsreaders don't wrap correctly.
