How exactly you escape things with PHP on Win32 depends
on the PHP app's method of parsing strings :-(   But clearly
the backslashes are being stripped out.

Hmm...where do you do this? It isn't in the PHPMyAdmin file...thats all just
server and error handling stuff. But you're right, the only perceivable
problem is that the backslashes are getting stripped.

I wonder where djc is this evening...
