Yeah, this can be avoided by turning off electric-indent-mode.

It's because the indent-line-function is set to indent-to-left-margin.
Doing C-q TAB works.

Setting indent-line-function to a smarter function would fix this and
the newline problem.

I'm not able to reproduce this problem though.  As long the paragraphs
start with whitespace M-q doesn't combine them, as documented.  For
example, with the following buffer contents, pressing M-q doesn't change
the buffer:

   xxx xxxxxxxx xxxxx xxxxxx xxxxx xxx xxxxx xxx xxxxxxx xxx xxx xxx
xx xxxx x
   xxxx xxx xxxx xx xx xx xxxxxxx xxxx xxxxxxx xxx xxx xxx xx xxxx
xxxxx xx
