I'm not familiar with BGPmon but your symptoms sounds like typical programming issue.
The '\' is stripped probably due to a "Stripslashes" function in the code. So by doing double '\\' you kinda
trick the code into only doing the first one.
I don't really know of any way around this.

I'm trying to edit my prefixes' AS path regex in BGPmon, and when I add a
'\s' in the Regular expression field, upon save, the '\' is stripped.
Is this expected behavior?
The workaround is to insert a '\\s' instead, but one needs to remember to
do this on every edit, and I tend to forget which results in panicking the
others on our team with false positives.
