Comments field shouldn't matter. It's not written to the radio.
Try not to use CSV. Do everything with .img files and the Chirp editor.

When I clear all the comments from the field, reset the radio to factory settings, then reprogram with CSV (cleared of comments), the repeater function is as expected. Reprogramming via CHIRP without resetting the radio to factory settings does NOT clear the problem.
