As far as I can tell from your example this is the intended  
behaviour... More precisely, with the article class, the following  

	\item A
			\item aa
			\item bb
		\item B
		\item C

should produce (and does so on my MacTeX install) something like (I'm  
using a monospaced font)

1.  A
	• aa
	• bb
2.  B
3.  C

If there is a problem, then it does not stem from the program you are  
using but from the format/class you are using... The versions can be  
seen at the beginning of the log file. you would, for instance get:

This is pdfTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.40.3 (Web2C 7.5.6)
  \write18 enabled.
  %&-line parsing enabled.
