I get the odd "\\" behavior on my local installation on my laptop 
running MacOS 10.3.9, but I just updated the PmWiki on my web site and 
it seems to be doing the same thing. You can take a look at the bottom 
of the home page (I have 3 "\\" there and the last "\\" doesn't get 
translated into a line break):


You can use the following to edit the pages:
