Yes, I'm closing as not-a-bug.  It's been this way (and documented) forever.  More specifically, as the docs say, a raw string can't end with an _odd_ number of backslashes:

String quotes can be escaped with a backslash, but the backslash remains in the string; for example, r"\"" is a valid string literal consisting of two characters: a backslash and a double quote; r"\" is not a valid string literal (even a raw string cannot end in an odd number of backslashes). Specifically, a raw string cannot end in a single backslash (since the backslash would escape the following quote character).
