an issue with issue, an agetty bug?

»Q«
After upgrading to sys-apps/util-linux-2.33-r1, I can no longer find a
way to put literal backslash characters into /etc/issue properly.  For
many years, '\\' in the issue file would result in a single backslash
being printed.  I don't think this was ever documented;  it's just the
natural way to escape backslash as a special character.  I guess the
change is with agetty, but I don't know.  Any ideas?

p.s.:  Downgrading to util-linux-2.32-r4 got me the old behavior back.
