question about RegexpSplitAttributeDefinition

That's the thing, the problem does not appear to me to exist in the source. It's possible that the mysql connector (this is a mysql db) is bugged and adding those "\" symbols in front of the ";". Note that ";" is a special character in mysql - so maybe the fact that we're storing these ";" characters in the mysql db is messing up the mysql connector. 

The IDP logs do not show the "\" character but just this week I've seen a similar issue with the IDP not displaying/printing the "\" character.

Is there a SP I can test against that requires either eduPersonAffiliation or isMemberOf? I'd like to see how they react to this kind of data.

What's the data source? Can it be "fixed" instead?
