That's what they call a bug -- and it's all my fault.  I'll fix it
in the next release.

On you windows machine, there's no work-around.

If you want to be adventurous on your linux machine, you can actually
alter the source code.  Open the source code file `artemis.pl' in a
text editor and search for the subroutine "gds2_import_text".  Change

    $val =~ s/[!%#*].*$//;	# ease puts end-of-line comments on
                                # guess lines


    $val =~ s/[!%#].*$//;	# ease puts end-of-line comments on
                                # guess lines

(that is, remove the first asterix).  That'll fix your problem with
very little possibility of a side effect.  And, as I said, it'll be
fixed in the next release.
