Am I overlooking something?
I know very little about 'canonical equivalence' but since I expect one should be able to put anything between \ \Q and \ \E I do think you have found a bug and I think you should submit a bug report.

In regular text the soddin forum software interprets two touching \ as a new line so I have had to put a space between them!
Thanks for the investigation, Sabre. Found another one along the same lines:
Pattern p = Pattern.compile("[\\r\\n\\\\]", Pattern.CANON_EQ);
Exception in thread "main" java.util.regex.PatternSyntaxException: Unclosed character class [\r\n\\] at java.util.regex.Pattern.error(Unknown Source) at java.util.regex.Pattern.normalizeCharClass(Unknown Source) at java.util.regex.Pattern.normalize(Unknown Source) at java.util.regex.Pattern.compile(Unknown Source) at java.util.regex.Pattern.<init>(Unknown Source) at java.util.regex.Pattern.compile(Unknown Source)
