Bug#440734: xbase-clients: xmessage displays backslashs used for escaping commas

Package: xbase-clients
Version: 1:7.2.ds2-2
Severity: minor

This is a very minor problem :-)

Try this:

$ xmessage -buttons "Yes\, I want that,No\, I do not" "Some text"

I end up with one correct button "Yes, I want that",
but in the other one, the backslash is shown: "No\, I do not".

Seems the parsing of the button line could be improved.
To give my users an interface that is as easy as possible,
I'd like to have the commas on the buttons...
