    Yes, it looks like PayPal changed something over the weekend whereby if they receive one of these characters;

    < ' " )

    they go into error and then redirect the customer to their homepage. That includes not just the product descriptions but also a name and address. It is a bit unfortuante as obviously a single quote is a perfectly legit character in an address. Anyway, I've added some code to remove those characters from anything in the link and hopefully that will fix it.
