Thanks for the heads up, I've added it to my to-edit list.

This in fact is a weakness in wiki syntax in general -- I have yet to
see one handle literal blocks within a numbered bullet scheme.
I'll try some ideas when editing, but solutions are usually found with
one of the following:
* Reformat "# Steps" as "== Steps =="
** Sadly, not good for DocBook conversion.
* Make the <pre/> block all on one line.
** Only works where the text is a single line.
* Drop the numbering and use regular bullents.
* Drop the autoformatted bullets and increment a manual numbering
** Hacky and hard to maintain, but if you get to where the content is
relatively stable, doesn't hurt much.
* Ignore it in cases such as this where the wiki is an intermediate
format; we'll make it look good in DocBook and maintain it
