No, this is expected behavior of most UNIX style command prompts. The
backslash character starts escape sequences, so you need to have two
in a row to actually get a single backslash passed to the program. So
you would actually use the following:
nvsetenv boot-device hd:2,\\\\:tbxi
I know it looks wrong at first glance, but it should give you \\ in
the real setting in firmware.
