See https://emacs.stackexchange.com/q/46808/105.

Please consider letting users easily (e.g. user option) not highlight a
newline character when it ends a comment, such as in Lisp.

The effect should be to highlight only the chars of the line, starting
with `comment-start', up to but not including the newline char.

(I never would have noticed how annoying the default behavior is if I hadn't 
tried putting a background color on comments, as the OP did.  I don't even 
think it should be the default behavior to highlight the newline char.)
