It's the server logs that went wrong.  The logs were written out with 
the full text of the comments written into the file but with CR/LF's. 
When they were read back in after the restart, it only read up to the 
first CR and missed the rest.  A separate bug got log numbers mixed up 
and ended up over-writing the log files with the truncated ones.
