When accessing a database through an inferior process (M-x sql-msql) the history for the current session history (M-p/n) works Ok. But when restoring history entries from a previous session the string '\40' is found where spaces are supposed to be. ej. select\40username\40from\40users;.

I'm guessing the issue is related to 40 being 32, the ascii value of space, in octal. But I can't figure out where things go south. Any idea or how to fix this or what could be causing this behaviour?
