New issue 383 by alsergbox: unescaped characters are sended to xmobar

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Configuring xmonad for xmobar with
     xmproc <- spawnPipe "xmobar -t '%StdinReader% }{' -c '[ Run StdinReader
]' -o"

         logHook = dynamicLogWithPP xmobarPP
                         { ppOutput = hPutStrLn xmproc
                         , ppTitle = xmobarColor "green" "" . shorten 50
                         , ppUrgent = xmobarColor "black" "red"

2. Open a window with something like tags in the title, e.g. open
http://bisoncpp.sourceforge.net/bisonc++.html in firefox
3. xmobar writes "couldn't parse string... " and doesn't parse it, displays
as a plain text

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?

xmonad 0.9.1
xmobar 0.9.2

Are you using an xmonad.hs?  Please attach it and the output of "xmonad
