Funny one :D  Reproduced on linux:

  >>> open('/tmp/t\nest', 'w')
  <open file '/tmp/t
  est', mode 'w' at 0x7f11268a19c0>

file_repr in Objects/fileobject.c calls http://docs.python.org/c-api/unicode#PyUnicode_AsUnicodeEscapeString, equivalent to encode('unicode-escape'), so backslashes should be escaped.
