Lists must start with 1. When it saw the 0, it assumed it was a definition list, so the numbers after that don't look right.

It's likely that Pod::Simple has always formatted this list as a definition list. Is that what you wanted? If so, then you can fix it by wrapping the numbers on C<> or S<>. If not, then consider re-numbering from 1.

Either way, this warning has alerted you* to an unexpected inconsistency, and so gives you the opportunity to do something about it.

*Where by "you" I man the maintainer of this module and others that might exhibit a similar problem.
