Single quotes not handled correctly?

When I set a cell to a string value that contains a single quote, I get an XPath exception. For instance, this fails

worksheet.Cell(row, 7).Value = "Bio with ' in it ";

Fails with '//d:si[d:t='Bio with ' in it ']' has an invalid token.

after looking through the discussions, there is a a way to make it work that others have discoverred, but you will need to alter the source and compile yourself.
