but he's right! The behavior is really not as one would expect. At least different from a shell and C: 

"some\word" in config => some\word
"some\\word" in config => some\\word

"some\\\"word" in config => some\\"word (in a shell or C this would be the one)

So how to escape some\"word? 
"some\\"word" in config => syntax error

It only works with single quotes...
