Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

Not sure how to contact the library' author, but as I experienced this issue when using with the wordpress's class-IXR.php, so I report here (

See the attached script to reproduce the problem: There is a BEL (07) between the character A and B, and the client send the invalid character to the server.

Probably need to filter out the string like this ticket: #19998

You should look at your source file encodings a little closer. The problem is actually in your own source code. See file-encoding-problem.png as shown in my editor.
