Description of problem:

If you edit a Cobbler snippet through the WebUI, you will lose the following characters:

{ (left curly bracket)
} (right curly bracket)
( (left parenthesis)
) (right parenthesis)

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.  You may have to run "chown tomcat.tomcat /var/lib/cobbler/snippets" so that the WebUI can write to the snippet files.
2.  Create a Cobbler snippet through the WebUI containing the above characters.
3.  Save the snippet and either view it again through the WebUI or the command line.
Actual results:

The six special characters mentioned above (<>,(),{}) are removed from the file.

Expected results:

No characters are stripped from the file.

This appears to be fixed in the current devel code.  Couldn't find the commit sadly, but moving to on_qa for more testing.
