When trying to make write an apostrophe like Brian's or something like that posting/updating an existing post changes this into Brians

What's more is every time the post is updated the number of " increases by 1 so updating a post that WP converted Brian's to Brians would then become Brians and so on this is increasingly annoying and I see no way to fix this. I was told this was most likely a bug and I should report it here so here I am.

I usually update via a client so this goes un-noticed for some time until i get emails asking why i have 12 apostrophes. I have made posts from the back end of WP 3.0 to test this as well and it exists so the bug i am guessing is on the code level not the client level.

I added this under the editor component not sure if this is right please feel free to move it and take it easy this is my first bug report to WP
