[PAYH] PHP5.2 and magic_quotes

I have just moved the PHP back-end of a forms-based application from CGI to PAYH (the front end is untouched apart from using a different 'action' URL in the <form> tag).
The front-end form uses POST, and the receiving PHP uses $_POST to receive it.   
If a single quote ( ' ) is entered anywhere within the form text, it now appears in the backend as escaped quote ( \' ), whereas in CGI it was unaltered.
Has the default for magic_quotes_gpc in the PAYH environment been switched to 'enabled'?

Yes, magic_quotes_gpc is on. It shouldn't be. Stick    php_flag magic_quotes_gpc Off      in your .htaccess and it won't be.

Thanks Gabe. Your absolutely right: having magic_quotes enabled is daft.
And the entire freature is removed in PHP6 anyway so PN are storing up trouble if they leave it on...
