The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 3860
msdfs proxy is documented as using a single \ before the hostname

This will actually work, as trim_char is used to remove zero
or more \ characters from the beginning and end of the string,
but all the other commands and options use \\host\share.
I discovered this while tech-editing Using Samba 3rd Edition,
and submit it should be changed to \\ in the man page as well.
