Problem with backslashes in smb.conf

I've had a behaviour with some smb.conf feature ... should I call it a 
feature or a bug ? I putted this service :
;share the first dos partition
   comment = C:\
   path = /dosc
And when browsing it appeared as :
Sharename      	Type    Comment
C		Disk	C:\path = /dosc

whith the working directory set to /tmp!
The problem came from the backslash in the comment, which was taken as a
continuation line when parsing. So beware !

I think we're in trouble.
                -- Han Solo
Would it help if I got out and pushed [the Millennium Falcon] ?
                -- Princess Leia Organa
