This is specified in the syntax highlighting files for each type of 
comment and for each language. For example, ruby.xml has

<comment name="singleLine" start="#" position="afterwhitespace"/>

This was specifically changed by Nibaldo González about a year ago. I'll 
CC him, maybe he can explain in more detail.

If you want the old behaviour back, you can locally copy the ruby.xml 
file and remove the position="afterwhitespace".
