Bug description
---------------

In some situations newline fails to move point to the next line, even
though the newly inserted line is blank.

To reproduce the bug, run the following command:

   emacs -Q --eval '(progn (fundamental-mode)

                           (modify-syntax-entry ?/  ". 124b")
                           (modify-syntax-entry ?*  ". 23")
                           (modify-syntax-entry ?\n "> b")

                           (setq comment-start "// ")

                           (auto-fill-mode 1)
                           (setq fill-column 9)
                           (setq comment-auto-fill-only-comments t)

                           (insert "/*  //x  x")
                           (newline))'

Expected result: A newline character should be inserted, and point
should move to the next line.

Actual result: A newline character is inserted, but point is not moved.
The *Messages* buffer contains the following message:

   comment-search-backward: Beginning of buffer

The definition of comment-search-backward contains the following
possibly relevant comment:

   ;; FIXME: If a comment-start appears inside a comment, we may erroneously
   ;; stop there.  This can be rather bad in general, but since
   ;; comment-search-backward is only used to find the comment-column (in
   ;; comment-set-column) and to find the comment-start string (via
   ;; comment-beginning) in indent-new-comment-line, it should be harmless.
