/* print layer url info */
void print_layer_url(int get_method){
        layer *temp_layer;

        for(temp_layer=layer_list;temp_layer!=NULL;temp_layer=temp_layer->next){
                if(get_method==TRUE)
                        printf("&layer=%s",temp_layer->layer_name); <-- no "escape_string"
                else
                        printf("<input type='hidden' name='layer' value='%s'>\n",escape_string(temp_layer->layer_name));
                }
=========
Solution:
=========

if(get_method==TRUE)
          /* printf("&layer=%s",temp_layer->layer_name); */
          printf("&layer=%s",escape_string(temp_layer->layer_name));
