bad C-j behavior in Emacs-Lisp mode

emacs -Q
In Emacs-Lisp mode, put cursor after (bar m) and hit C-j.
(if (string= foo "a")
    (bar m) ; Comment
The cursor is put after the semicolon. It should be put before it,
ready for you to type the second "then" clause of the `if'.
This is what happens (with the cursor at |):
(if (string= foo "a")
    (bar m)
                                        ;| Comment
This behavior would be better:
(if (string= foo "a")
    (bar m)
  |                                     ; Comment
It doesn't make sense for the cursor to move from outside to
inside the comment.
