Thanks for catching that. I think you're referring to 753fbfbe, not to 284c470e as the Subject: line says. 284c470e was intended to not change behavior. 753fbfbe was intended to fix behavior, but obviously I messed up in that instance (and thanks for fixing it). I now see that I also misclassified a few changes in 284c470e, as they actually did affect behavior (e.g., this change in verilog-mode.el:

-                (re-search-backward "/\*")
+                (re-search-backward "/\\*")

), but I think these misclassified changes all fixed bugs so it should be OK.

One other thing. In 284c470e I tried to leave bugs alone when in doubt. That is, although there are undoubtedly still some bugs related to backslashes, when in doubt I left behavior the same as it was before. For example, lisp/net/tramp-adb.el has this:

(defcustom tramp-adb-prompt

and both instances of \\$ should probably be just $. I wasn't sure, though, so I left them alone.
