Why is that a problem?

Can?  Yes.  Will?  No.

In written Danish some strings have to end with a full stop
while others only end with a full stop, when they are last
in a sentence (like in English).  Your observation is most
likely a side-effect of this, and I can't see any sensible
way to avoid it.
