Bug #46313 Magic quotes broke $_FILES

When magic_quotes_gpc are enabled, array $_FILES in weird.

1) truncated file name (see "closed" bug #29369)
2) slashes and non-slashed keys

Reproduce code:
<form action="" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="file" name="o'file">

Lets upload file named o'brazek.png (there are quotes in element name and in file name to demonstrate both errors)

Expected result:
array(2) {
  "o\'file" => array(4) {
    "name" => string(11) "o'brazek.png" // or o\'brazek.png ?
    "type" => string(11) "image/x-png"
    "error" => int(0)
    "size" => int(20624)
    "tmp_name" => string(23) "C:\PHP\temp\php3ED8.tmp"

Actual result:
array(2) {
  "o\'file" => array(4) {
    "name" => string(11) "o" // name is truncated after quote
    "type" => string(11) "image/x-png"
    "error" => int(0)
    "size" => int(20624)
  "o'file" => array(1) { // tmp_name is stored in different key
    "tmp_name" => string(23) "C:\PHP\temp\php3ED8.tmp"

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.

Fixed for slashes vs non-slashed keys in $_FILES.

For truncated filenames, it seems to be wanted on Windows, as \ is a path separator.

Thank you for fix.

ad truncated filenames: the name is truncated after apostrophe (there is no slash in the file name) and only when magic quotes are on.
