[IPython-dev] IPython bug?

With readline mark-directories set to "on" (the default value), on 
windows when I try:

In [3]: cd d:\msl\gb\
   ...:
   ...:
   ...:
   ...:
   ...:

The trailing \ on a magic command seems to make it request 
continuations forever. I agree that \ as the separator on windows is 
horrible. I don't know why the Python guys use it. Virtually everything 
works with /. I might try changing it somewhere. In the meantime, it 
breaks IPython.
