cPanel/WHM not honoring php config for turning off magic quotes

view story

http://serverfault.com – I have set in my WHM php configuration for magic quotes to be off, however phpinfo is reporting that '--enable-magic-quotes' is set in the Configure Command section, and I'm having issues that lead me to believe they are caused by this(Joomla 3 adding slashes in my content). How do I turn off magic quotes for real. I assume that the Config Command section containing '--enable-magic-quotes' means that when the php interpreter is launched it's passing that option? (HowTos)
