It's strange.  With this simple test.js:

  /* comment 1 */
  gettext('test string 1');

  // comment 2
  gettext('test string 2');

I get the following PO:

  #. comment 1
  msgid "test string 1"
  msgstr ""

  #. comment 2
  msgid "test string 2"
  msgstr ""

by calling xgettext as follows:

  xgettext --add-comments --omit-header --no-location -o - test.js

gettext-tools/tests/xgettext-javascript-1 actually contains a similar
test, though it uses a different option: --add-comments=TRANSLATORS:
