Okay, well that explains it, then.  The behavior you describe was,
in fact, a bug in earlier versions of Mathematica, and the latest
version of Publicon is still based upon one of those earlier
versions of Mathematica.  I think that, for your purposes, the
Open and Close lexical properties of the curly quotes aren't
really that important.  So I recommend that you simply replace them
with NonBreakingAfterLetter and NonBreakingBeforeLetter.
