Bug: Comment plugin won't work on anchors

When using the comment plugin with a target defined as an anchor, it works the first time, but will break the anchor afterwards (Initially reported in CommentPluginDev by LyallPearce).

Test case

See http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/rdiff/Plugins/CommentPluginDev?rev1=1.265&rev2=1.264

Dunno if this bug should have been filed here... but as the CommentPlugin seems to be shipped with the CairoRelease, I assume this is OK.

Olivier, I haven't got time to do all the testing around this, but I will assume you are certain that this isn't a problem with the OUTPUT template. I have checked in your changes (and those of JacobEisinger) and made a new release, so please makes sure it works. Thanks!

You should really report plugin bugs in the Support web, but in this instance you will get faster response by posting here.
