Chrome should not convert '\' to '/' in URLs

Reported by, Oct 12 2011

Issue description

Chrome Version       : 16.0.899.0
OS Version: OS X 10.6.8
URLs (if applicable) : http://cs/includes\(
Other browsers tested:
     Safari 5.1: OK
  Firefox 7.0.1: OK

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Go to a URL with '\' in the path section.

What is the expected result?
Chrome escapes the '\' to '%5C' and sends it.

What happens instead?
Chrome converts the '\' to a '/', assuming I've typed a Windows path, and breaks the escaping of the regular expression I was trying to type.

UserAgentString: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_6_8) AppleWebKit/535.6 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/16.0.899.0 Safari/535.6

Putting regular expressions directly into a URL path being typed from a browser address bar sounds like begging for trouble to me...
