This is a behavior that annoys me too. If you look at your document,
you should find that the line breaks appear a <br/> instead of
</p><p>. And since alignment applies to the whole paragraph, it
applies to your whole document.
This bug manifests itself in more annoying form, (for me at least)
when you insert a page break. Then centering the text beofe the break
does it to the text afterwards as well. This bug was discussed by me
and paul bout a year ago, but I couldn't find it.
But if you look at other WPs, they have the same behavior (which i
think is wrong).
So that's why it happens. I don't have a good fix for it, but I don't
think you're wrong.
