bug in echo

Using RedHat Linux 7.1, kernel 2.4.9-6, I obtain the following:

    /bin/echo "atime: \c"; ls -dlu findx
atime: \c
-rwx--x--x    1 ballenti ballenti      376 Nov 30 10:49 findx

Under Solaris, I obtain:

    /bin/echo "atime: \c"; ls -dlu findx
atime: -rwx--x--x   1 ballenti users        376 Oct 30 12:34 findx

Apparently, the line-continuation character, "\c", is not working under
