Consider the following in c-mode (with indentation removed):

   // this is a test
   // foo bar
   int a ()

If you position the point on the word "test", and hit M-q (bound to
`c-fill-paragraph'), nothing happens.

If you then do `M-x c++-mode', and hit M-q again, the comment is filled
as you might expect.

_However_ if you use `M-x fill-paragraph' instead of M-q
(c-fill-paragraph), then it works correctly in both modes -- so it
appears that the bug is with c-fill-paragraph.
