I've found a little difference between the way how LuaJIT and LUA parse string. In the string 'test\)' the last bracket treated as a mistake by LJ, but LUA ignores a slash in this case.

$ luajit 
LuaJIT 2.0.0-beta9 -- Copyright (C) 2005-2011 Mike Pall.
JIT: ON CMOV SSE2 SSE3 fold cse dce fwd dse narrow loop abc fuse
> print('test\)')       
stdin:1: invalid escape sequence near ''test'

$ lua
Lua 5.1.4  Copyright (C) 1994-2008, PUC-Rio
> print('test\)')       

Could you tell me which version is correct? If LJ's is wrong, I think attached patch solves a problem.

Thanks for your attention and excuse me please for my awful language :)
