cPanel adds backslash in mysql db table?

    Anyone knows why cPanel is adding a backslash before the underscore in the mysql "db" table? If I have a subhost called "test", and from cPanel I create a db called "mtest", a user called "muser" for a table called "mtable" in cPanel and check out the mysql db table with root afterwards, the fields Db and user in the db table shows in one row:

    Db: "test\_mtest"
    user: "test_muser"
    What is the point of that backslash? The thought crossed my mind that it was a bug, but I checked out /usr/local/cpanel/Cpanel/ and found this on line 276:

    if ($db !~ /\\_/) {  $db =~ s/_/\\_/g; }
    A search/replace regexp for _ to \_... So this is deliberate, but I wonder why? It makes the auto-creation scripts I'm making a whole lot more awkward. (bye bye GRANT for example...) :confused:
