Flickr interface not properly escaping special characters in photo descriptions Answered

I've been putzing with the Flickr importer thing in the upload images page. I have a few images with descriptions that have standard doublequotes ("), and it appears they are not being properly escaped when pasted into the javascript for the page, and causing all sorts of havoc.

Having 'fixed' my photostream to remove special characters in photo titles, I just noticed that imported photos do not pick up the proper title as entered at Flickr, they simply pick up the filename of the image in Flickr's notation: ie: 485988740_b4e1b56218.jpg
