A problem to add binding to entry widget

There is a problem in add a binding to the entry for the <KeyPress> event.
I use the add-binding routine suggested by the author as below:

(define (add-binding widget event binding where)
  (let ((old (bind widget event)))
    (if (null? old)
        ;; Try to look if a class binding already exists for this event
                (set! old (bind (winfo 'class widget) event)))
    (bind widget event
          (if (null? old)
              (if (eqv? where :before)
                          `(begin ,binding ,old)
                          `(begin ,old ,binding))))))

Say I have a entry widget .a and I added a bind as:

        (add-binding '.a "<KeyPress>" '(format #t "AAA") :after)

The binding is fine except key '\'. When I type '\', stk gives me error
of "end of file inside list". However, without adding the binding, key
'\' is as normal as any other keys.

I could not find the reason because the tracer shows me the bottom of the

Thanks for any help.
