Yes.  With Frame not running, open your maker.ini, the one
in the main FrameMaker directory, in a text editor.  Find 
the [Spelling] section, and at the end of it is SmartQuotes:


which shows the actual quote characters.  Change it to:


which uses their numeric codes; this is actually specified
in the file, in a comment above that line that has the codes 
for several different languages.  Save and close maker.ini,
open FrameMaker, and enjoy.  

I had the same problem, and that solved it for me.
