## WP is stripping backslashes from $latex$ tags when copying posts

Question

I’ve got a free blog hosted on wordpress.com. If I have a post with something like this:

$latex begin{bmatrix} 1 -1 end{bmatrix}$


And I copy the post, WP turns the block in the copied version into this:

$latex begin{bmatrix} 1 -1 end{bmatrix}$


Notice the backslashes missing from begin, end and between the numbers. Is this a known bug? Is there an obvious solution for when I want to copy a post and preserve, well… everything?
