Check your PHP configuration; do you have the 'magic_quotes_runtime' option on?
(see )

If you do, try turning it off -- it's likely to cause no end of trouble.

If that's not it, I'm not sure what else could be causing this...
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2004-09-22 21:11:34 UTC
Reopening this for now; we should add a check for this setting and abort the installation with a message 
explaining the problem.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-03-20 09:06:29 UTC
Check for magic_quotes_runtime and magic_quotes_sybase now checked into the installer for REL1_4 and HEAD.
