Ctrl-4 generating ^\ is a keyboard configuration setting that can
be seen with xev:
KeyPress event, serial 40, synthetic NO, window 0x3200001,
root 0x2b4, subw 0x0, time 87345747, (114,90), root:(1719,110),
state 0x4, keycode 13 (keysym 0x34, 4), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (1c) ""
XmbLookupString gives 1 bytes: (1c) ""
XFilterEvent returns: False
Byte 1c (= 28 in decimal) is ^\.
FYI, Ctrl-3 to Ctrl-7 respectively generate 1b to 1f, and Ctrl-8
generates 7f (DEL).
Since this happens just under X, I'd say that it is related to XKB.
However the XKB keyboard description generated with
xkbcomp $DISPLAY xkb.dump
doesn't show anything related to this behavior.
