Remove the `(setq fill-prefix " * ")' from my-indent-setup.

What's happening is that in `c-indent-new-comment-line' (what C-M-j is
bound to) a fill-prefix overrules everything else, and this doesn't get
indented.  Incidentally, M-j is also bound to this function, and might be
easier to type.  :-)

If you actually need fill-prefix in this buffer for some good reason,
then we'll need to think of another solution.
