Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Confirmed. Basically this happens:

>>> import ConfigParser
>>> import io
>>> cfg = """
... [foo]
... bar = baz # lalalal
... """
>>> config = ConfigParser.RawConfigParser(allow_no_value=True)
>>> config.readfp(io.BytesIO(cfg))
>>> config.items("foo")
[('bar', 'baz # lalalal')]

So the python ConfigParser module does not strip comments if they are at
the end of a key=value pair. I will fix that for the next maintenance
release. For now, "don't do that". And thanks for reporting, that is a
nasty one...

The easiest fix is to remove these resources with the "--force" flag.
This simply kicks them out of the internal database. You then might have
to make some zfs cleanup, but in you case the zfsvols should not exist
anyways I guess.
