Tue 19 Mar 2013 05:30:48 PM UTC, original submission:

The following code should define a, b, and c. Instead, the line immediately after a comment is ignored (treated as part of the comment). This is a regression from the current stable parser (3.6.4).

Sample Code:

The code works correctly if the commands are put in a file and the file is sourced, so this is only about comments typed in on the command line (such as with copy and paste of a chunk of code).
