I've actually run into the very same thing, although it was not with
Markdown mode (which I also use). Instead, it happened with org-mode
buffers that changed on disk because a new version of the file was
synced from Dropbox.

I haven't seen the bug in a while, however, and I haven't investigated
it. There are two things that changed since I saw the bug that might be
relevant: I downgraded from emacs-snapshot to the latest release 24.3.1
(though since you're using that same version, that probably isn't it)
and I unset `auto-save-visited-file-name`, which I used to have set.

Do you happen to have `auto-save-visited-file-name` set to t? And did
you try with `emacs -Q`?
