BUG ? Cannot add new category in 1.5.1 IF cat name contains "'" char (1 post)

    Hello, since I'm recovering from a very painful update to 1.5.1, and I have noticed some strange behavior while creating a new category that contains the "'" (apostrophe) char.

    If you try to create a category like: "hello'world" (minus quotes), saving the form results in an "unknown error".

    But I than noticed you can save "hello\'world"
    Obviously, you can also save "hello world"

    But the funniest is that once a category name is saved, you can edit it and rename it to "hello'world"

    Now this looks like some escaping issue ..

    But I'm not sure ..

    Can someone please confirm this behaviour ?
