Actually you get domain%5Cusername
%5C is \ in URL encoded form.

Squid-2.5.STABLE4 as distributed does not do this, but if you are using a
nightly snapshot or the relevant patch then this symptom will be seen. The
change is part of the upcoming 2.5.STABLE5 release and why it was needed
is mentioned in the release notes (see the nightly snapshot release notes
until 2.5.STABLE5 is released).
