Oh, okay. I wish I'd seen your patch before I hunted this bug down
myself, but thanks anyway.

You're right, the comment module is very broken right now. Most of the
problems are related to the pager or the comment options box, but there
are limitations with this module that are really quite suprising. Can we
still not delete a single comment in a thread, for example? This is
evil, and wrong.

I've just upgraded a 4.6.1 site to CVS and there's no comment pager on
nodes with more than $comments_per_page. Is this a bug, or it it one of
my modules? I've tested the site with various other themes, including
the defaults.

Can anybody confirm this? I can't find the problem.

Confirmed in HEAD. The problem is here (comment.module,

      if ($pager = theme('pager', NULL, $comments_per_page, 0,
array('comments_per_page' => $comments_per_page))) {
        $output .= $pager;

The $pager variable is empty (for whatever reason), hence no pager is
generated. I didn't debug this any further...

Confirmed here too - can any one take a look at this?

Comment paging has been broken in CVS for at least 3 months, yet only
one other person has noticed this? 

Here's a patch to fix the bug...

I also posted a patch there [1].
But there's still some major bug with comments...
