If I change my password to use slash characters (both) I cannot authenticate to gtalk or facebook. If I change to a password that does not use slash characters, I can authenticate.

Slashes work for me, I just tried.

If you have a \ in your password, make sure to quote it when entering it in your BitlBee.

If your password is foo\bar type it as either "foo\bar" or foo
