What is command+\ suppose to do?
On my system it is associated with 1Password, but that is a 3rd party app that grabs command+\
What do you expect it to do? That might help identify what is interfering.
NOTE: If command+\ is suppose to be a standard Mac OS X shortcut, then what happens when you boot in Safe Mode (boot holding the Shift key, and 3rd party drivers and extensions will not load). Of course if command+\ is not standard Mac OS X shortcut, but is associated with your own 3rd party app, then Safe mode may disable that

Good spot. Yes, it does turn out to be 1Password, in a roundabout way. Odd how that shortcut didn't show up even in things like KeyCue, but it is a shortcut for a Safari Extension so may be less 'visibile' to shortcut-sniffing utilities than normal apps.
Acting on your tip, I visisted 1Password and got to here: http://help.agilebits.com/1Password3/keyboard_shortcuts.html. I nixed their 'Fill Login' shortcut - which thankfully I don't use. After that Tinderbox worked well.
The shortcut is set via 1Password's setting and - I think - affects the plug-in is all browsers (or if used only work with Safari). I have the 1P extension in Safari/Firefox/Chrome here having altered the 1P preferences all seems well.
The really weird bit was how, when running, the iP extension shortcut suppressed the '\' in a 'Cmd+\' keypress. Very odd.
FWIW, I stumbled on this as I also use Eastgate's Tinderbox daily and that has Cmd+\ hard mapped to a much-used dialog. the only possible fix short of not using one app or the other was to remove or alter the shortcut for the 1P browser extension.
