What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

If a question's title has a backslash, inserted "possible duplicate" links are broken (check revision histories, both have since been fixed). I'm not familiar with all of the markdown parsing, but the only significantly affected cases appear to be Windows paths, as it would otherwise be rare to end the title with a backslash.

The solution appears to be as simple as replacing \ with \\.
