I found a old message how a ' in the Subject line

We (collectively, not royally :-) ) had this problem on our system
some time back. Turns out there was a message with a ' in the
Subject line, and when MHonArc stored that ' in its dbfile it
mistakenly read it as a string terminator for the value in the
hashtable. As I recall, the solution was to edit the mail file
and escape the offending apostrophe before rebuilding the archive.
Does that risk still exist?
No. This was fixed a long time back. v2.5.4 should have no
problems with single quotes.
And do I have to add ISO-8859-15 into CHARSETCONVERTERS
to avoid such ' in subject lines?
Will a upgrade to 2.5.4 reduce that?

The CHARSETCONVERTERS has no affect on the mechanics of how the
.mhonarc.db file is written.
