[pmwiki-users] apostrophes getting doubled, backslashes stripped

Something weird has begun happening on one of my sites, since I changed 
hosts a few days ago.  Whenever I submit changes to a page, all 
apostrophes (') get doubled (''), and all double backslashes (\\) are 
turned into single backslashes (\).

It seems to me the most likely culprit would be magic_quotes_sybase: 
However, phpinfo shows that this feature is turned off:
All the magic_quotes settings are the same as on our previous host, 
where the problem did not occur:

What else could be causing this problem?  Any ideas are welcome.

The site is running pmwiki-2.2.0-beta68 .  I have not made any 
configuration changes to the wiki since changing hosts.

Thanks in advance!
