Upgrading to PHP 5 -- fix 3

And, of course, there's the famous "backslash" or "magic_quote" problem. The only way to sensibly develop a large PHP app is to turn magic_quote Off in the php.ini file. That way, you can get reliable behavior from addslashes & stripslashes. When you port to a new php implementation, however, you'll find that, by default, magic_quotes is On. Edit php.ini, turn magic quotes Off, issue a /etc/init.d/apache2 restart, and your text inserts & fetches shouls be fine.
