I have the opposite problem. If I put a comment in a latex file, all
the text following the comment is highlighted with the comment font
colour until there is a ^L and then normal fontification works.

I've observed this on two Debian boxes - one running Debian Testing
(Sarge) and the other running Debian Unstable (Sid). The Debian
unstable versions are 

GNU Emacs 21.3.1
AucTex 11.13-1

I get the same results with emacs -q - don't know about emacs
--no-site-file as AucTex is initialized via the site-start.el, but
I've not modified it from the default Debian scripts.
