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.
