Summary0003831: LADSPA preset names not escaped properly
Descriptionwhen saving a LADSPA plug-in preset in ~/.ladspa/rdf/ardour-presets.n3 Ardour 2.x SVN (revision 9083) does not properly escape preset names that contain special characters (for example double quotes ""), which causes the plug-in presets to not be read on the next startup of Ardour, usually with a console message like:

liblrdf: error - URI file:///home/in0giro/.ladspa/rdf/ardour-presets.n3:70 column 78 - Junk before terminating "."

see line 70 in attached "ardour-presets.n3 (bad)" file for example of not properly escaped preset "Label".

for this case, simply proceeding the double qoutes with a backslash seems to help.
TagsNo tags attached.

maybe something like "& q u o t ;" (without the quotes), as done in the Ardour 2 session file would be appropriate here?
