How can I enclose my code snippet with { } inside JIRA's inline code notation {{ ... }} ?

I want to write something about Bash scripting as a comment to a JIRA story, and it will involve inline code snippets surrounded by

{ }


When I wrote something like

Command grouping with curly brackets won't launch a subshell: {{{ ls; date; uname; }}}

the formatting was screwed up.  I also tried

... {{ \{ ls; date; uname; \} }}

and several other variants, all in vain.

We use JIRA v6.3 if that makes any differences
