It sounds like you have standard_conforming_strings turned ON (making
backslashes not special in string literals) but there is some part of
the client-side code that is not aware of that, and thinks it needs to
double the backslash in the LIKE pattern. Either turn off
standard_conforming_strings or make sure you are using code that is
new enough to cope.
