Whoops.   I mean forward slash, rather than backslash.
In the IPA input method, typing "/" followed by "3"
gives you the same character as just typing "3".
It should not -- that's an accidental duplication.
The basic problem is that the IPA input method doesn't
cover all of the IPA character set (thus, there are some
IPA symbols that you cannot type).
In most other cases, the "/" key typically modifies
the next character.
