what are the correct magic_quotes settings in Kolab

here in Ireland, the apostrophe appears very commonly in surnames, such as
"O'Reilly" and "O'Regan".  The O' is an anglicised version of Ó which means
"of" (as in born of) in Irish.

We're finding putting apostrophes in names is causing problems in our kolab
v2.2.4 install.  I'm not sure if these are little code bugs or if perhaps
PHP has the wrong magic_quotes settings.

phpinfo() shows these three entries:

          Directive             Local Value		       Master Value
magic_quotes_gpc                On                                 On
magic_quotes_runtime            Off                                Off
magic_quotes_sybase             Off                                Off

Is that the correct config for Kolab?  Is there a prescribed config?  There
doesn't seem to be any mention of quotes in php.ini or apache-php.ini.
