You're obviously using here David Carlisle's enumerate package, not  
that from the LaTeX kernel, which does not have optional arguments in  
[]. It uses the hanging indent you don't like.

The indent is approximately \labelwidth+\labelsep. Could be  
\leftmarginvii is the sum of both.

You could also try to use LaTeX's enumerate environment... It's easy  
to emulate the behaviour of emphasised text particles. But maybe  
you're using David Carlisle's software a bit more often...



We have to expect it, otherwise we would be surprised.
