How to prevent a * from becoming a bullet?

Under "Settings" of your user account you may disable autoformatting in the editor.

And if you do not switch it off completely: Ctrl-Z (on windows) undoes the autoformat.

You escape it, I think with the tilde character or backslash:

~* this
\* this
should work.

I've tried both ~* and \* and nope that's not doing it.
