Try wrtiting 2 or more backslashes. When a backslash appears at the testparm
result, all will work fine. The testparm needs 2 or more backslashes to get
one like the separator. It is because the backslash is a special character.

Ah, and don't worry for the same error/warning at the testparm after writing
them, I also use the backslash like separator and I don't have any problem.
