Backslashes in Environment / Script-Variables are not quoted correctly for Groovy

    Description

      Under windows, the variable "WORKSPACE" usually contains backward-shlashes (i.e. "C:\Jenkins\foo\bar"). Trying to assign a string variable like

      String baz = "$WORKSPACE
      sandbox";

      is not possible. After the variables are substitued Groovy complains about illegal character, since the statement looks like this:

      String baz = "C:\Jenkins\foo\bar
      sandbox";
      ^ illegal escape sequence
