[php-maint] Bug#422567: strip_tags() does not handle single quotes correctly

Package: php5
Version: 5.2.0-8+etch3

This bug - apparently a regression - has been already been reported to
the PHP team here: http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=40704
PHP's bug-tracking system reports that this issue was resolved in CVS as
of March 3rd, but it affects the current Debian stable package.  I am
copying Steffen Weber's example:

Reproduce code:
$html = "<div>Bug ' Trigger</div> Missing Text";

Expected result:
Prints "Bug ' Trigger Missing Text".

Actual result:
Prints "Bug ' Trigger".

I presume this is issue can be resolved by incorporating the appropriate
updated code for strip_tags() into Debian's build.
