I'm not able to reproduce the behaviour - I could swear I tried it 
several times. I must have been doing something wrong.

(I notice now that the html rendering of markdown tables in thje preview 
pane will be slightly corrupted in these cases - toggling to Plain Text 
and then Markdown again however resolves that. Perhaps this is what 
lured me.)
