This is very similar to #3963, and I suspect is caused by the same underlying issue. I was actually looking into this a couple of weeks back and I believe the issue can be traced back to <fieldname>_text_type not being stored into the extra_data field to capture the current markdown state. Hoping to work on this in the not too distance future as time permits.

I would say this one is harder to see working. I mean, while #3963 works at least the first time, seeing + as <bullet> happens only once in a while. I'm talking about 2.0.15 revision.

This seems to be the same root cause as bug 3963 (which is now fixed), so I'm marking as a dup.
