From the ipythonrc file:
# ii. readline_remove_delims: a string of characters to be removed from the
# default word-delimiters list used by readline, so that completions may be
# performed on strings which contain them. Do not change the default value
# unless you know what you're doing.
Try removing '\' from the delimiters list to see what happens. Some escaping
might be necessary. If this fixes it, we can always put a note in for users.
