[R] backslash escape characters in JSON strings

I am trying to consume a web service that returns a JSON string, however,
when I run
> fromJSON(s)
Error: '\/' is an unrecognized escape in character string starting "http:\/"

because the string s contains a single backslash, which is the JSON escape
character, but R expects 2 backslashes, I think.

Is there anyway to preprocess the JSON string returned from the web service
so it escapes it according to R escaping rules?
