Yeah, definitely an oversight in the language grammar for Java. It  
has a special rule for methods to list the names in the function pop- 
up which does not expect the comments.

Seems the indentation patterns for Java do not expect comments after  
‘}’ (either), so those lines do not decrease the indent.
