      Description

      We have at least two cases where the following style of block comment is picked up by javadoc and used because there is no explicit javadoc comment for the method in question:

      /**************************************************/
      /* A block comment */
      /**************************************************/

      See Control#queryAccessibleAttribute and TableView#queryAccessibleAttribute for two such examples. In both cases the overridden methods don't have their own comment, so the previous block comment is used.
