I don't think this behavior is new. You can ``fix it'' by pressing Return twice and then delete one of the Returns in stage 2. I'm not sure what forces a rescan.

By the way, I rarely ``hide'' and ``un-hide'' this way. It's so easy to simply put the cursor anywhere on the line and then Source->Comment and Un-Comment the line (Cmd-{ and Cmd-} with US keyboard localization).

Good Luck,
