Juan Manuel,

YMMV depending on your needs and habits, but another workaround for this problem would be to use visual-line-mode instead of filling paragraphs.

Thanks for your advice, Kyle. Adding the U+200B char. works fine to
avoid false positives. Anyway, like Tim Cross says, that situation
maybe should be considered as a bug. I think the ideal behavior would
be for Org to consider a list only when there is a blank line above.
But, well thought out, I am afraid that it would not prevent false
positives, as one may want perfectly write a list at the beginning of
the document, or start a plain paragraph with (for example) a digit + a
period + a space...

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
