* but this does
#delimit;
**********
*  box   *
**********
#delimit cr

This doesn't work for me, but the following does:

* but this does
#delimit;
**********
*  box   *
**********;
#delimit cr

Sergiy brought up the strangest thing. I never knew that // was
unreliable with ; as a delimiter. But try and run this:

* this works
#delimit ;
// comment
#delimit cr

* this does not
#delimit ;
//
// comment
//
#delimit cr

* neither does this
#delimit ;
// ;
// comment;
// ;
#delimit cr

* but this does
#delimit;
**********
*  box   *
**********
#delimit cr

So I guess there is one instance where * would be preferred to // as a
comment delimiter. Well, nevermind.
