sha*sum and filenames with backslashes

When the *sum family of programs are given a filename that contains
a backslash, a spurious backslash is given at the beginning of the
output line.

This appears to be a feature, since it's explicitly in the code.
However it isn't documented, which can cause surprises for programs
that expect to parse the output of *sum.
