bug#2929: 23.0.92; Broken auto-filling in message-mode

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I use this message-mode setup:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun th-message-mode-init ()
  (setq fill-column 72)

(add-hook 'message-mode-hook 'th-message-mode-init)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

When I follow up to a message and write some text longer than
fill-column it is wrapped, but comment chars are inserted.  Here's an

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
--text follows this line--

Chuck Norris once ate a whole cake before his friends could tell him there was 
a stripper in it. 
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

The line starting with "foo bar baz" was entered by me and after
inserting a space after "ketm" the comment chars where inserted.
(`comment-start' is ">" and `comment-end' is "*/" in message-mode.)

I was able to reproduce that with emacs -Q by invoking M-x mail,
switching to message-mode, enabling auto-fill-mode, setting comment-end
to "*/", inserting the text above, and starting to write.

It seems to me that comment-end set to "*/" seems to trigger this
behavior.  When I do the emacs -Q procedure it's set to "" by default,
and then the bug doesn't occur.  So I guess message-mode should set it
to "" in order to avoid such strange effects.

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
If you would like to further debug the crash, please read the file
/usr/share/emacs/23.0.92/etc/DEBUG for instructions.
