Nope.  You were trying to test out something by using a \ character at the
bash command line.  In your test case, bash ate the \ character just like
it would on UNIX.  The "problem" that you saw was unrelated to the problem
in gcc.

Unset all of your TMP environment variables:  TEMP TMP TMPDIR, etc.
