Package: audacious
Version: 3.2.1-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
Tried to play m3u playlist with backslash directory delimiter. These are useful
for people who dual boot or share playlists with people using Windows. May
Linux audio players understand these playlists, e.g. Foobnix 2.5.35

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
Double clicked on the playlist in my file manager.

   * What was the outcome of this action?
An error dialog like this:

Cannot open /home/user/Music/Artist/Album\Subdirectory\01 - Artist - Song.mp3:
No such file or directory.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
I expected the playlist to play like it always has before with audacious. It
should interpret backslashes as forward slashes. Does the player need to
reserve the backslash as an escape character?
