Description field with national chars gets mangled

Description field in gui gets progressively mangled. Probably at upgrades.

The text started as: ubuntu på fysisk disk Which correctly is stored as: Xubu_phys.xml: <Description>ubuntu p&#xE5; fysisk disk</Description>

Some upgrades later: Xubu_phys.xml.1.6-macosx.bak: <Description>ubuntu p&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;#xE5; fysisk disk</Description>

Now: Xubu_phys.xml.really_wrong: <Description>ubuntu p&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;#xE5; fysisk disk</Description>

To me it looks like upgrade encodes the text without first decoding it. I'm running on OsX 10.5

Is this still an issue? Can't reproduce the problem here (although with VBox 3.0.6). Please reopen if necessary.
