Hi,

This is a known issue in the way that the mysql *client* (not the MySQL
server) parses multi-line comments.  It's fixed in 4.1.1 (the client, I
assume, which you could use with any server version), according to the
following page, which also describes the problem:
http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/Comments.html


Hope that helps.


Matt
