Yes, that's what I thought I said - but if it didn't happen, I doubt
anyone would ever notice (have you ever seen a \ used in a quoted string?)

Done right would be better - but this is just a scan display, the name
is simply truncated if wider than N columns, worrying about unexpanding it
perfectly is pretty silly when you then simply slash the result.
