[TxMt] a bug in the Markdown bundle

Make a Markdown document like this (ignore the equal signs, they are just to show you the boundaries of the document content)


* One
  * Two


The Markdown bundle marks "Three" as markup.raw.block. This is wrong. As you'll see if you preview the document, it is the second paragraph of the second-level markup.list.unnumbered.

To make things worse, the bundle turns off wrapping in markup.raw.block, so if "Three" is a long paragraph, now you can't read it because it runs off the right side of the window.


PS Granted, nested lists in Markdown are annoying and incoherent; this is one of the main reasons why I use kramdown instead. Nevertheless, the syntax coloring and wrapping should try not to get in the way of constructing one's document.
