Description:
------------
Any file uploaded that has a name containing an apostrophe ('), eg foo'bar.txt, will be incorrectly named in the $_FILES array. It will ignore all characters up to and including the apostrophe.

  foo'bar.txt  ->  bar.txt

Tested on PHP 4.3.10/Apache/FreeBSD 5.3 and PHP 5.0.4/IIS/Windows 2003.

Reproduce code:
---------------
<html>
<body>
<form action="<?php echo $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?>" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="file" name="file"><input type="submit">
</form>
<pre>
<?php
print_r($_FILES);
?></pre>
</body>
</html>


Expected result:
----------------
Array
(
    [file] => Array
        (
            [name] => foo'bar.txt
            [type] => text/plain
            [tmp_name] => d:\PHP\uploadtemp\php9B1.tmp
            [error] => 0
            [size] => 9
        )

)

Actual result:
--------------
Array
(
    [file] => Array
        (
            [name] => bar.txt
            [type] => text/plain
            [tmp_name] => d:\PHP\uploadtemp\php9B1.tmp
            [error] => 0
            [size] => 9
        )

)
