Pressed "Enter" too quickly

Starting with at least Tclh 8.5a5, interactive mode seems to ignore an initial line continuation character.

% puts \
\
%
Just puts "\"

The expected behavior was a prompt for the rest of the input

% puts \
"some string"
some string
%

Other uses appear to work properly:

% puts "some \
string"
some string
%

% puts \\\n
\

%
