The only thing I can think of that might be responsible for this is
that somehow that quote is being mistaken as the closing quote in the
sql statement; e.g.

UPDATE table SET field='String of text containing some quotation marks
(like this one ' and this one ') before the end of a sentence';

...I guess that this would explain why you get everything up to the
first single quote. Of course, I have _no_ clue why single quotes
would cause problems in your instance and not in any others that I've
heard of. It's odd.

Question: If you insert a ">" and a "<" in the same content element
and then view the resulting page, do they show as ">" and "<" or as
"&gt;" and "&lt;"?
