Exactly! Thank you very much! I still don't understand why altering
paragraph-start and paragraph-separate doesn't work, but who cares? ;-)

One more thing: Do you also know a text-/minor-mode which is the opposite of
paragraph-indent-text-mode, i.e. every line NOT starting with an
indentation is considered as a new paragraph?

This would be useful for text like the following:

Topic1: This should be
        one paragraph.
Topic2: This should be
        one paragraph.
