Fixed: now special chars (# \ [) are escaped in config files.

By the way, names beginning with "#" are reallowed for bars, proxies, filters and IRC servers (see bug #33020).

This is what happend recently:

/alias # input jump_last_buffer_displayed
Alias "#" => "input jump_last_buffer_displayed" created
(starting weechat again)
Error: unknown command "#" (type /help for help)

When you have a look at alias.conf it is rather obvious why that
alias wasn't loaded:

# = "input jump_last_buffer_displayed"

The line for the alias looks like a comment and thus is ignored
by WeeChat.  WeeChat should have a way to escape characters
which prevent config files from being parsed correctly.  I
imagine the following could cause problems too:

/alias [ away ]



(Note: upload size limit is set to 16384 kB, after insertion of the required escape characters.)
