Thanks! Seems I have skipped some parts of the manual. :)

I can live with this now that I know it. It is extremely confusing at
first, though, so future generations might prefer to live without that
feature if it is not really necessary. That is, if a comma is not needed
when the star (*) is not at the beginning of the line.

All the best,
