I *think* your patch is correct.

Certainly, it is valid to get metafied input at the lexer.  See for
example the end of zleread() which calls zlegetline() which calls
zlelineasstring (typically --- unless we already have a metafied line)
which metafies the line that's about to be returned.

I'm a bit surprised the lexer doesn't have more cases like this, or a
more general way of dealing with metafied characters, but handling a
backslash the way you suggest looks perfectly OK.  However, wait and see
what Bart says, too.
