My quick guess is that the stray '\' isn't intended to be an escape
but is actually left over from Windows using '\' as the directory
delimiter rather than '/' and that we aren't stripping it.

QUITTING!



When I opened the script.db file I discovered an escape at the
beginning of every filename.
Entry { category = "auth", filename = "\anonFTP.nse" }
Entry { category = "default", filename = "\anonFTP.nse" }
Entry { category = "intrusive", filename = "\anonFTP.nse" }
Entry { category = "discovery", filename = "\asn-query.nse" }
Entry { category = "external", filename = "\asn-query.nse" }

I also had a friend test this out with the latest beta and he
encountered the same bug.

Cheers,
Michael
