I think this is specific to w32. Yes & needs to be escaped there.

I hope you mean that Emacs or Emacs W32 should do the escaping. These
binding indications are added automatically.

I am not sure I understand you, but & is the character you put before a character in the menu string on w32 to mark that character as an accelerator in menu. (It will be shown underlined then.)

An example: "&Help" will show "Help" in the menu with "H" underlined.

So fixing this is a w32 specific problem.

We discussed a little bit before adding the possibility to use accelerators in the menus. Perhaps this should be fixed when that is done to avoid splitting the code to much?
