Something is screwy with adaptive-fill-mode or adaptive-fill-regexp,
this fill should just work.

Have you changed any of the defaults?

Make sure that adaptive-fill-mode is t, and that adaptive-fill-regexp
is set to something sane (mine is "[    ]*\\([-!|#%;>*·•‣⁃◦]+[  ]*\\)*"
Should be the default, at least up to Gnu Emacs 23.0.0.1.

Try M-x list-load-path-shadows to see if you're loading incompatible
versions of anything.

You're running a bleeding-edge version of emacs -- try grabbing a new
snapshot and see if the problem goes away.
