Leave backslashes in backticks

It seems that the mail bot converted `\` into just `` (and `\\` into 
`\`) when sending the mail. It should leave everything inside backticks 
be, since it should not be processed for quoting.

The Leaning Toothpick Syndrome[1] strikes back!

In the fixpath shell script wrapper, we transform single `` to `\`, to 
make them correctly escaped. Unfortunately, the bas variable 
substitution pattern I used were missing a `/`, so it only replaced the 
first backslash, not all of them.

Thanks to @vidmik for analysis and fix!
