Starting from emacs -Q,

 (progn
   (switch-to-buffer "xx")
   (erase-buffer)
   (insert " # aa aa\n")
   (insert " # bb bb\n")
   (insert " # cc cc\n")
   (insert " # dd dd\n")
   (goto-char (point-min))
   (perl-mode)
   (fill-paragraph nil))

gives

 # aa aa
 # bb bb cc cc dd dd

whereas I hoped the fill-paragraph would include the first line too,

 # aa aa bb bb cc cc dd dd

The problem is only if the lines are at the start of the buffer.
I noticed this under filladapt which narrows to its desired target
region and fills that.  The problem occurs both at actual start of
buffer and when narrowed.

I couldn't tell where it might go wrong except that it might be related
to perl-mode using comment-start-skip "\\(^\\|\\s-\\);?#+ *" which has a
\\(\\) group to demand preceding whitespace if not at start of line.
If you change it to

  (set (make-local-variable 'comment-start-skip) ";?#+[ \t]*")

then the fill correctly includes the first line.
