It allowed any sequence of characters other than '{', which (as far as

the comment being misparsed.

        %union /* A valid Yacc comment that is not a valid C comment *\
/ because it has *-backslash-newline-/ in it */ {
            int ival;
          int yylex (void) { return -1; }

whoever's making comments like that can get over it :)
