That's expected behaviour, comments can cover line-breaks, all it looks
for is the next occurrence of '*/'

Similarly, you can't nestle comments, e.g.

/* outer /* inner */ outer */

...fails; the "outer */" is passed on instead of skipped.

Using an editor that can highlight syntax is helpful for spotting this.
