Is duplicate of GNOME Bug 332549 – Search and Search&Replace have a problem with the "\" backslash, which is duplicate of GNOME Bug 328637 – Find & Replace dialog missing/confusing '\t', '\n', etc. strings.

IMHO that this is _not_a documentation bug.

It would be so if the it were about this scenario:
"if you want to and replace \t, write them in the dialog box as \\t, for not taking the for tabs".

But the scenario is this:
"if you select a text containing \t, the search and replace dialog box shows automatically the selected text with \t instead of \\t".

This is a behavioral bug. The select and replace dialog should replace in the selected text \ with \\ before displaying!
