Text string verb arguments are being parsed differently depending on whether they are input via the command line or via the popup input box.
Presumably, a text string should be treated the same regardless of how it is passed as an argument.
I have discussed this issue with Tom, and he asked me to post it here.
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
Compile a program including the following snippet:
mob/verb/test(t as text) src << "1-[t]-2"
case 1: Click the "test" verb and in the input box, enter the string "\\".
case 2: On the command line, type "test [space] \\ [enter]"
both cases output "1-\\-2"
case 1: "1-\\-2"
case 2: "1-\-2"
