It does. But, if you have a single statement running over multiple lines, the 
*first* line that doesn't start with a leading space terminates the 
statement. Always consider how a statement would look if you wrote it on one 
line, e.g.:

access to attrs=userPassword
	by cn=root,dc=mydomain,dc=com write
#	by group="cn=Account Admins,dc=mydomain,dc=com write
	by self write
	by * auth

is going to end up terminating at the # ...

I note that no comment lines appeared in the ACLs you posted ... if you had 
included the exact contents, this could probably have been resolved a lot 
sooner ...
