Thank you for reporting back.
The weird thing is, that it does actually. I recall this being an issue a few releases back, but I've added a function to filter all texts through the stripslashes() php function. That should do the trick, but I'm not sure anymore. I've tried to re-create the issue, but I'm able to input all kinds of text there, including special characters.
May I ask, if you use qTranslate, Polylang or WPML by any chance?Best,
