Your test case works fine using both the standard '.' form and a single forward-slash. Given that a well-named class shouldn't contain multiple meta-characters (eg. \\\\\\\\\\) in the first place, I want to flag this as an edge-case that probably will not be experienced by a large number of users. Leaving it open for now.
