Well, there are two possible interpretations: (1) it's a bug, or (2)
it's an intentional, about-to-be-documented feature that backslashing a
letter makes it case-sensitive in ILIKE.
I do not care for interpretation #2 ... especially in view of your
observation (confirmed here) that pre-8.3 releases didn't do this.
I think it's just a bug in 8.3.
