I think path names should be printed with forward slashes on Windows as
well as elsewhere to avoid this type of confusion, and this.
>>> sb
'tmp\\foo'
>>> print(sb)
tmp\foo
(Of course I know why.)

Users have been advised on python-list by various people to enter
literal paths with forward slashes for the same reason.  Printing them
out that way would encourage and reinforce this.
