[ipxe-devel] Backslash in chain scripts converted to %5c - escaping issue

Hi All,

If I enter iPXE shell and enter "chain \boot\x86\pxelinux.0",
everything works - it pulls this file via TFTP from next-server.

If I put the same string in a iPXE script and chain that via HTTP,
there is an escaping issue (the slashes are converted to %5C). I have
tried double slashing and adding quotes to no avail (these escape
characters are simply converted too).

Is there another way?
