Build system throws memory error when \ used in releaseDir path

When building under Windows and using the releaseDir option the build system throws fatal Java out of heap or out of memory errors during writeResources.

The problem is described here:, as is the workaround.

The problem occurs when a Windows-style path is specified i.e. path\to\release\dir but does not fail when a Unix-style path is specified i.e. path/to/release/dir.

This seems specific to the releaseDir property as other paths seem to to work correctly.
