Saving import profile issue

When saving a profile for import/export, the enclose value in field, comes back with a backslash trailing the quote character. Every time I save the profile it continues to add backslashes.

The input fields value is being echoed using the function getValue. What I’m trying to figure out is what is setting the value and why it’s adding backslashes.

This seems to be throwing off my import. The import falls apart after the visibility field ,the value is Catalog ,Search. This field would be enclosed in quotes and I believe this is why my import is not working. I’ve tested my csv files without this field and it works fine. When the field was present it was causing the fields to get mapped incorrectly, the fields were getting mapped to the previous field.

I’ve noticed that when I use a different value in the “Enclose Values In:” input the trailing slash is not added. I’m assuming it’s adding an escape character, however I don’t want this to occur.

If anyone could help or point me in the right direction that would be appreciated.
