That sounds like it then.  Now that I know about it, we can avoid
apostrophe's in the future, or we can fix the bug (is there a patch?).

Is there a way to clean up the mess it made?

Thinking that apostophes are not that uncommon in book titles led me to
try this:
select title from biblio where title LIKE "%'%";

Which returned 112 rows.  Do I need to do something to fix them, or will
a patch address this?
