Just beginning with ess and emacs in general, so forgive me... 

Using ess 5.2.11, gnu emacs, and win2000: 
I have been experiemtning with the comment and autofill capabilities in ess
[sas] and found that when i try to continue a comment i get a peculiar string 
of reg expressions instead of a comment, for instance:

M-; generates:  \*\|/\*  ;\|\*/

And if i am typing a comment that should be wrapped, instead of postfixing the 
appropriate end-comment character, it generates: ;\|\*/
