There is a bug in yecc when using terminals whose names have characters
which need \ escaping, for example the atom '\\'. The terminal atoms are
generated without the extra "\" characters. This means that the
generated .erl file will not compile correctly and the only fix is to go
in by hand and add the "\" character.
The bug is in the function quoted_atom which used to generate the atom
name string of terminals:
There are no problems using atoms like these in productions as the code
for generating the productions use erl_pp:expr which does it right.
