If in the Name or Short Desc of a product there is a semi-colon ";" (such as if you add an & which is converted to "& amp ;" in the html editor) then if you try and restore the saved cart you can get unexpected results, including product not being restored, or part of the desc appearing in the qty field of the cart!

This appears to be due to the use of semi-colons as the delimiters in the "cartcookies" field of the "savedcarts" table.

I've done a quick patch by replacing ";" with "[sc]" before it is writted into the db (Sub SessionSaveCart), and switching back again when it is recovered (Sub Getcartvalues)

Hope this helps someone!
