Safari bug: Web interface crashes creating/editing record with a "&" in a field

Server: APFW 11.0.1/XP

Client: Safari 3.2.1/OS X 10.5.6 

 

From Safari, create a contact and put a "&" in a contact field such as Department (e.g. "Dept. of Electrical & Computer Engineering"). Click the Save button/icon. Safari will spawn a popup window with all sorts of raw HTML in it, and from that point on the web session is dead. The only way to recover is to logout (click it several times until it finally logs out) then log back in. Your changes are lost.

 

IE6/Win does not exhibit this bug. 

 

"Don't create records with a '&' character" is not an acceptable workaround, because I have existing records with ampersands in them already.
