Incorrectly escaped Unicode characters#

In: title, tags, creator Sometimes, Unicode characters were encoded incorrectly. Symbols like \u<xxxx> were saved as either \\u<xxxx> or u<xxxx>. Thus, instead of showing the non-ascii symbols, they are shown as gibberish in the UI. This is addressed in the Nuxt front end. When data refresh is run, the incorrect values can be replaced if the upsert_strategy for the column is newest_non_null. However, for the strategies that update the value instead of replacing it, this results in duplication of the values. Thus, some items have duplicated tags: the correctly-encoded tags cannot replace the incorrectly-encoded tags because they are different.
