They do work.  Go ahead and try them out.

The slashes appear whenever you go through a POST type Are You Sure  
dialog (as opposed to a GET type).  In an unpatched and unplugged WP  
2.0.3 (tag 2.0.3 or revision #3825), edit a comment with single  
quote, a double quote and a slash in it somewhere.

Are you running 2.0.3?  I believe some recent change in *trunk's*  
TinyMCE turns quotes into entities before POSTing (so quotes would  
not get escaped, only slashes would).  This is one reason the bug was  
not discovered pre-release; people believed that testing on trunk was  
good enough.
