When you define sasl-regexp with escaped characters in the match pattern, slapd
incorrectly assumes an escaped C style sequence instead of a regular expression
interpretation of the '\' .

Quick fix: use '\\' before any needed escaped character in the regex

Not high priority, but it was very irritating until I figured out what was going
on.  Hope this saves some people some time.
