Dirk is right, this was a huge pain brought on by a number of complaints 
, most notably by Rob of macosxhints.com.  We have fixed it but GL2 will 
handle all this stuff in a way that requires no addslashes or 
stripslashes in the code.  The unfortunate implication though, is that 
when GL2 does come out, old stories may be a bit borked.  Before you 
fret, we may very well try to 'fix' this inside the migration scripts 
but remember, this is not a trivial fix giving the mess we have.
