storing a backslash character in its own field works fine until I try to create a backup of the database. It creates errors in the backup file when trying to restore the database. I can manually put the \ back into the backup file.

Eg. I have my own configuration table where I specify the file path separator for the particular operating system i.e windows uses \

How to repeat:
store a single \ (backslash) in a text field and export it.
