backslashes in the session.save_path are not properly escaped when
printed out in an error message

Printing "C:\" doesn't require any escaping.
It's you who needs to escape the slashes when you enter them in your

since when? and where is this written?

if you are right than at least this is a documentation bug

but i do not think so

from php.ini-recommended:

; Windows: "\path1;\path2"
;include_path = ".;c:\php\includes"

and \ in session save path works, it is just the error message which is wrong! and using 'c:\temp' always worked and still works as expected.

the problem is not the error displayed, the problem is in the displayed error. (the error was a local problem already fixed)

Reproduce code:

session.save_path = "C:\temp"

continue a session without valid session file

Expected result:
session_start() : open(C:\temp\sess_ifj79uququ2tu2gnhu8ol2cs81, O_RDWR)
failed: Invalid argument (22)

Actual result:
session_start() : open(C: emp\sess_ifj79uququ2tu2gnhu8ol2cs81, O_RDWR)
failed: Invalid argument (22)
