Just to be clear, even though the traceback is python 3.6, the same bug occurs in 3.7 with an identical traceback except for some changes in line number

I wouldn't mind taking a look at this. Feel free to assign it to me!

`restart "` also crashes with the same tb
msg322602 - (view) Author: Jared (j-rewerts) * Date: 2018-07-29 02:34
Would it be possible to escape both of those?

For the first one, restart "\\"

and for the second one, restart "\""
msg322603 - (view) Author: (ppperry) Date: 2018-07-29 02:37
Both of those work and don't produce an error
msg322604 - (view) Author: Jared (j-rewerts) * Date: 2018-07-29 02:46

Is it possible to start a python program with either \ or " as arguments normally (without using character escaping)?
