I still only get the potentially buggy behavior with the backslash character --
other escapes specified on the command line *do* seem to be bound to 'other'
automatically. Could the code somehow not handle the backslash appropriately on
the command line? This is what lead me to wonder about zsh (although I did try
tcsh and bash with the same result).

I imagine I could do this with a little 'stuff'ing, but it's hardly worth it.
Offhand, does anyone know how much a zombified window "costs" in resources?
