Description:
Some variables values with paths are displayed mixing Windows and Unix slashes syntax, i.e:

C:\dbs>c:\dbs\5.1\bin\mysql -uroot --port=3510 --prompt="mysql 5.1 >"
Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 2
Server version: 5.1.43-Win X64-log Source distribution

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement.

mysql 5.1 >show variables like "%plug%";
+---------------+-----------------------+
| Variable_name | Value                 |
+---------------+-----------------------+
| plugin_dir    | c:\dbs\5.1\lib/plugin |
+---------------+-----------------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

How to repeat:
See description.

Suggested fix:
Use only Windows syntax.
