Bug Description

Version: pt-table-sync 2.0.1

1) Run pt-table-checksum , discover differences exist between master and slave.
2) pt-table-sync --print --replicate percona.checksums master1 , to find out what it's going to do.
3) Pops up a bunch of errors of the form:
Unknown column 'R1992062264' in 'where clause' [for Statement "SELECT MIN(`docno`), MAX(`docno`) FROM `boc`.`doc` FORCE INDEX (`PRIMARY`) WHERE (((`docno` >= R1992062264)) AND ((`docno` <= R1992112899)))"] at line 3465 while doing boc.doc on slave1

4) ... ?
Nothing seems to end up being done

Master1 is running 5.1.58, Master2 is running 5.1.58, slave1 is running 5.1.59.

I presume it's because it's failing to quote the values it's doing a comparison against? I've confirmed adding ' marks around the values docno is being compared against makes it actually return data.
