Version 2.3.1 (2006-06-01)

attached base packages:

[1] "methods"   "stats"     "graphics"  "grDevices" "utils"    
[6] "datasets"  "base"     


sprintf("\p") doesn't show the backslash, this occurs with all strings that start with certain letters. There is however no explanation to this behavior. And there seems to be no way to get a guaranteed backslash in sprintf.
