Machine Type: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu

Bash Version: 5.0
Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

If a variable contains one '/' (or many)
and if this '/' is escaped with '\' by substitution mechanism
and if the escaped variable is concatenated with a string containing '/' as prefix, and another string containing '/' as suffix
then all characters in prefix and suffix are escaped with '\'
The problem does not occurs in a "" context

echo 'My URL: '$ESCAPED_URL' ... OK'
echo '/My URL: http:\/\/example.com ... OK/'
echo "/My URL: $ESCAPED_URL ... OK/"
echo '/My URL: '$ESCAPED_URL' ... KO/'
