Thanks for the report, I can reproduce it in 2.7.1 and R-devel, on Linux
as well as Windows.
I think we really do want the double backslash to be displayed, so that
what you are working on in the editor can contain escape sequences; the
bug is that they are being treated literally after the edit.
I'll see if I can fix it.
