I don't know how to face a strange behavior caused by the appendix package. I'm using KOMA-Script book class and many other packages (see here: http://pastie.org/1728702)

When I add an appendix (not the package, the \appendix command or the appendix block) at the end of the document, figures and sections get a final dot. For example

Fig 5.4.:

5.1. Section title

5.1.1. Subsection title

Has anyone already experienced this problem?

The appendix package is not the culprit. Adding a final dot to sectioning and figure/table numbers in case an appendix is present is the documented default behaviour of KOMA-Script. To remove the dot, add the class option numbers=noendperiod.
