New submission from Edward K. Ream:

On both windows and Linux the following fails on Python 2.7:

   s = '\\Upsilon'

UnicodeDecodeError: 'unicodeescape' codec can't decode bytes in position 0-7: end of string in escape sequence

BTW, the six.py package uses this call.  If this call doesn't work, six is broken.
