JS confirmation dialog for deletion in 'manage posts'

Line #213 in wp-admin/edit.php

The javascript confirmation dialog fails to appear when trying to delete a post under 'manage posts' if the title of the post contains any single quotes. Thus the post is deleted without confirmation.

I see that wp_specialchars is encoding single quotes in the title as ' but the JS is converting that back to a single quote which ends the message string early and results in the popup dialog's failure to appear. I would recommend adding some logic to js_escape to make sure any single quotes are getting escaped, such as a str_replace to add a backslash in front of the ' chars.

[3906] converts the 039s to a quote and then backslashes. See #2851.
