Ah, sorry. That's not really true in XHTML 1.0 Strict, though; a
blockquote can't contain just text:


For divs and in Transitional, yeah. The example with the image is pretty bad.

It's not the first time people have had problems with wpautop (if the
behaviour has changed, it was probably to fix it for someone else),
and they're going to keep having problems until someone puts together
a suite of regression tests.
