Escaping special character in simple and advanced search doesn't work

      Description

      Hi,
      According to http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA040/Performing+Text+Searches?clicked=jirahelp#AdvancedSearching%28newdraftfor4.1%29-EscapingSpecialCharacters%3A\ it should be possible to search for a special character using an \ escape prefix. But in reality, it isn't.
      For example, if you are interested in finding issues with [ in the summary, and in the simple search querying for

      /[

      - nothing comes back.
      Switching to advanced search presents you with

      summary ~ "\\["

      and there is no way to edit this query and make it work.
      Using JQL escape syntax doesn't work either:

      summary ~ "\u005b"

      ->broken search

      Thanks
      Lena
