Description of problem:
For example, a provider name of:
produces many error messages when rp3 is run, and ultimately a segfault.
The configuration file produced looks something like this:
# for the documentation of these parameters.
As you can see, the ' character isn't handled properly.
This is probably true of all types of connection, but I have only tested it for
modem dialup connections
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a new network connection using the Internet Configuration Wizard
2. Set its provider name to to some text containing a single quote
3. Run rp3, preferably from the command line, as you get to see error messages
Actual Results: Printed a bunch of debug info, complaining about unexpected
EOF's and not being able to close a single quote
Expected Results: Should have dialed out
Workaround: delete the connection and recreate it with a single-quote-less name.
