Magic quote turned off but double quotes still escaped

Magic quote turned off but double quotes still escaped

Hi Jason,

I just realized that my checkout form (of my shopping site) cannot send double quotes and it seems everything but the first back slash is truncated.

e.g) I type in;

"this is a test"

in a text field in checkout form, then in confirm page it shows as;

\"this is a test \" .

In the database, the value is sent as just

\ .

I checked my server and magic quote is turned off in php.ini.

What could be a possibility for this?
I googled solutions, most of them were about magic quote.
I did see people saying you can use "stripslashes", but not sure if it's useful, or usable in my case. (If it's useful, could you show me how?)

Thank you,
