Bug #21765 ?> is not hidden by // comment

Try the following at a shell prompt:

% cat <<EOF | php
//echo '?>';

The output will be:


It looks like the parser is picking up the adjacent '?' and '>' characters inside the single quotes in the echo statement after they've been commented out using '//'.

I'm willing to bet 10-to-1 this is not the correct or desired behavior.
