The reason that I care about this issue that I reserve "/*...*/"
comments for substantive comments, and use a Vim text editor script to
comment out parts of code using "//". This is why using ";" at the end
of the last line is not an option: it makes toggling comments
impossible. For this purpose, however,

#d;
* comment;
* comment;
pwd;

works like a charm. The "//" behavior is still a mystery.
