Knime ARFF Writer & Strings with " ' " char

When trying to use Knime to convert a .CSV file that has strings in it to ARFF files I've run into what could be called a bug.

If a string has a single quote ' . Knime does not escape the character in the ARFF Writer Node.  That is making the ' that appears within a string  \' .

You can see this problem with the Titanic Kaggle file.  If you try to run a process CSV reader to ARFF Writer.  You get a file out of Knime but the WEKA application cannot read the file because of the extra ' in the string.
