@charles: After a quick look at the code path, it looks like a bug in
the search query parser, it cannot parse the expression

So either the parser needs to be fixed or the code to generate saved
search names from searches needs to sanitize the search.

To fix the existing search, use Manage saved searches and remove the backslash from the search name. Or delete it and recreate it once this fix is released.
