SQL_Translations::on_update_to_merge() can be confused by SQL inside text fields #327

When SQL_Translations::on_update_to_merge() is called, we've already re-inserted the quoted string values that had been stripped out before other translations had taken place.

This means that the regexps in on_update_to_merge() can be confused by SQL-like syntax inside these string values. For example:

    $wpdb->query("INSERT INTO [wp_posts] ([post_author], [post_date], [post_date_gmt], [post_content], [post_content_filtered], [post_title], [post_excerpt], [post_status], [post_type], [comment_status], [ping_status], [post_password], [post_name], [to_ping], [pinged], [post_modified], [post_modified_gmt], [post_parent], [menu_order], [post_mime_type], [guid]) VALUES (1, '2019-02-27 23:23:12', '0000-00-00 00:00:00', 'Test content', '', 'Test', 'INSERT ... ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE', 'draft', 'ssc_blog_post', 'closed', 'closed', '', '', '', '', '2019-02-27 23:23:12', '0001-01-01 00:00:00', 0, 0, '', '')");

This will cause a SQL error on its first pass as a completely unrelated result of the invalid date, resulting in it hitting the translation routine.

Having done so though, the result of translation is quite spectacular 😄:

Is there a reason why on_update_to_merge translation needs to be called after the preg_data is re-inserted into the query, or could it just be moved up a little earlier? (Doing so seems to do the right thing, but I'm not sure if the current position was deliberate.)
