abbrevs in Aquamacs

The following isn't working for me (in Aquamacs)

(define-abbrev-table 'text-mode-abbrev-table '(
  ("\\a" "\\alpha" nil 0)                  ; want \a to abbreviate \alpha
  ("\\b" "\\beta" nil 0)

I don't have an issue with abbrevs in general,  there's just some
funny business with the abbrev involving a "\".

For example this works:

(define-abbrev-table 'text-mode-abbrev-table '(
  ("qa" "\\alpha" nil 0)
  ("qb" "\\beta" nil 0)

...but is inelegant.     Shouldn't I be able to define an abbrev that expands
things like \a , \b, etc?
I've seen examples from other people, so maybe this is an
Aquamacs-specific issue?

GNU Emacs (powerpc-apple-darwin7.9.0, Carbon Version 1.6.0)
 of 2008-02-23 on - Aquamacs Distribution 1.3b
