Numbered paragraph, unnumbered, numbered-- oops!

Entering a comment in WordPress, one of my users stumbled upon an
interesting problem with PHP Markdown:

1. You write a numbered paragraph.

You write a second, unnumbered paragraph to elaborate.

1. You another numbered paragraph, and the numbering resets to 1,
even if you number the paragraph 2.

I understand what's going on here, with PHP Markdown interpreting
each of the two numbers as the beginning and end of an ordered list,
but it's difficult to explain that to users. Is there any way around
this behavior?
