Ellipses in post titles not properly escaped

Description

I have noticed a bug in version 2.2.1 (and previous) of Wordpress relating to the filtering of post titles and the construction of post slugs. When inputting an ellipsis character into a post title (… -- notice it is not "..." but "…," the single character itself), Wordpress does not properly remove the ellipsis when constructing a post slug. Consequently, if one were to have a post named "What I Did Today…" located at www.example.com, the link would appear as "www.example.com/2007/08/28/what-i-did-today…" instead of "www.example.com/2007/08/28/what-i-did-today." Further, visiting the link would reveal it to be actually "www.example.com/2007/08/28/what-i-did-today%e2%80%a6" -- not very pretty and certainly not what one would want. Further, in the page itself, the ellipsis character would be left unescaped in the HTML instead of being replaced with the requisite "…."
