When commenting for the second or later time on a WP blog, the restored user information comes back incorrectly. My last name, O'Leary, is changed into O
\'Leary. It appears that the apostrophe is being escaped, then both the backslash and apostrophe are escaped, before being stored in the cookie. A backslash leads to the same effect. Each comment posted leads to another round of escapes.
