OK. The terminal emulator I'm using simply doesn't render the glyph.

It is behaving correctly. $'...' works using bytes.  You can get it to
expand a byte sequence to a multibyte character using \u or \x, but it
works on bytes and always has, just like in C.  Since 0x5c introduces an
escape sequence, that's how it's treated.
