"\\" treated like the end of the file

One of my classes has been behaving very strangely. Organize Imports would remove almost all of my import statements. Rename and Find All References wouldn't work. It was as though the Code Formatter couldn't see past a certain line in my file. Finally I figured out the line was this:
path = "\\..\\..\\..\\..\\..\\..\\..\\External Bin\\";

After some experimentation I found that the problem is with the \\" at the end of the string. I could recreate the problem by inserting "\\" in various places, and I found that the problem is fixed when an extra " is put in a comment after the problematic string.

It looks like the parser is treating code as though it's in a string.

I'm using FlashDevelop for .NET 3.5 with Windows 10.

To reproduce this bug, paste the following into an AS3 file and right-click the text editor and click on Refactor > Organize Imports.

   public class  MyClass
      public function MyClass()
         var s:String = "\\";
         var e:Event;
