ido-find-file confused when cursor over C comment #16

If a C-mode buffer contains the text:


inserting the cursor anywhere in the comment and running ido-find-file will try to locate a file named "/******************************************************************************" and fail.

Is this a bug with ido?

It's a quirk of ido-mode; I've run into it myself editing JS files. I'm sure it's possible to work around, but I haven't seen a fix yet. Would love to get a patch for it.

You can close this now, I guess.
