You could always remove the wpautop filter and call wpautop from your
own code with the second argument being 0.

    remove_filter('the_content', 'wpautop');
    add_filter('the_content', 'myfilter', 99);

    function myfilter($text)
	//... do whatever first
	wpautop($text, 0);

This would skip the part that inserts "<br />" at each newline

Alternatively you could just make sure you don't have newlines in the
wrong places.

Actually, I don't see how


would be affected (except after the last tag), while


would be.  But I could be reading the lookbehind regexp wrong...

The Markdown plugin has a good list of filters to remove and priorities
for where to add your own filters, if you need to play with wpautop.
I like it how comments get "converted" to HTML before insertion into
the database (while posts and pages are kept in Markdown format).
