$ dash -c 'foo=a; echo "<${foo#[a\]]}>"'

This is what I expect, and also what bash, ksh and posh do.

With your patch:

$ dash -c 'foo=a; echo "<${foo#[a\]]}>"'

Does the attached look right as an alternative? It treats a quoted backslash the same way as if it were preceded by CTLESC in _rmescapes. It passes your test case and mine, but I'll do more extensive testing.

It causes preglob's string to potentially grow larger than the original. When called with RMESCAPE_ALLOC, that can be handled by increasing the buffer size, but preglob also gets called without RMESCAPE_ALLOC to modify a string in-place. That's never going to work with this approach. Back to the drawing board...
