It's chordNameSeparator. Sorry.  "Different parts of a chord name are
normally separated by a slash", says the manual.  If you get rid of
it, you can't do C7b5b9/Bb but if you keep it you get C7/b5/b9/Bb.  If
you need a slash for bass notes use text, and of course that way you
can use parentheses C7(b5b9)/bb.  I like lower case for the bass
note although not many people use it yet, because it's far less likely
to be mistaken for another chord name.  daveA
