   echo "test<br>";
   // echo "blabla ?>";
   echo "this will not be executed";

This script sees the '?>' in the outcommented string as the end of the php code. I'm not sure, but this looks incorrect to me (or at least I hope it's incorrect :)

When using /* .. */ style comments everything works as advertized :)

This is intentional behavior, even though it's not trivial
to see it.  // comments work until the end of the line,
or the end of the PHP code, whichever comes first.
