Hi, Perry.

I've just seen the same situation with my private case: "pkgsrc-2005Q2
branch + update to squid-2.5.10nb2".  The change below should be fix
the problem.

The real user name in PKG_USERS does not need to be escaped with double
backslashes anymore. A single backslash is enough. Changed the
definition in all affected packages. For those that are not caught, an
additional check is placed into

In the case of my "pkgsrc-2005Q2 branch + update to squid-2.5.10nb2", still use old one, so I need to add doulbe
backslash.  I don't know this change depends on pkg_install(8)'s
version or not.

Do you use pkgsrc-current?  And what is your pkg_install(8)'s version?
