#2776: Most content is double-escaped in the database

Comment(by DJPaul):

 xprofile-1 address double-escaping of data in the database throughout the
 xprofile component.
 This patch also has fixes for #2694 and #2777 as they are related. It also
 reverts [3509] #2283 as the issue is best addressed when data is put into
 the database, rather than on output.

 I have tested it a lot and it seems to work as expected, both in the
 database as well as in the front-end and admin UIs. I have not tested the
 impact of the patch on existing xprofile data; search will not work on
 previously-escaped characters, such as apostrophes, but we need to check
 if we get any slashes output on the front-end and admin UIs. If so, we may
 need to (re)add extra stripslashes() to maintain this backwards
