I'm using cygwin, I talked with a few people in #weechat just after I submitted the bug and it looks like it's a windows-specific issue.

I just tested with nick "\\\", it works fine for me.
Which file system are you using, maybe the backslash is forbidden in filenames? I'm using ext3.

Trying to log a channel or nick with a \ character causes an error.

Example using a nick (The nick is \\\): logger: unable to write log file "/home/Shawn/.weechat/logs/irc.<server>.\\\.weechatlog"

Example using a channel (The channel is #Tes\t): logger: unable to write log file "/home/Shawn/.weechat/logs/irc.<server>.#tes\t.weechatlog"
