Hi, Kees,

Actually, the two lines constitute a single comment, the second "/*"
being part of the comment, not it's delimiter.  This might not be
relevant, though.

I can't reproduce this.  I've tried with a newly build 23.1.50, yet don't
see the problem, whether running under a console or X-Windows, though I
think I'm using a different window manager.

Do you have any feel at all for what might be causing this?  Would you
please start emacs without your startup files (i.e. emacs -Q) and see if
you still get the bug.

Thanks for taking the trouble to report it.
