Sometimes I get bitten by this too when Emacs convert a list of floating
point numbers e.g.

0.1 0.2
0.3 0.4
0.5 0.6
0.7 0.8


0.1 0.2 3 0.4 5 0.6 7 0.8

Note that adaptive-fill-regexp also supports prefixes of numbers
in parentheses like "(1)".  I never encountered a situation
where such prefixes cause a problem, so I suggest only to remove
a point (underlined below) from this part of adaptive-fill-regexp:

  "\\((?[0-9]+[.)][     ]*\\)*"
