it seems as if you did not recognize the message, written by Florian
Grammel on Sat., 11:17:

But you should try to replace the typographically "wrong" apostrophe '
in your text with ’. As far as I can see, the ' prevents
babel/polyglossia from recognizing the words and thus they are not
hyphenated correctly, giving you the many overful boxes. When I do this,
I can typeset your example in twocolumn-mode whithout any problems.

KOMA is obviously not handling ' as an apostroph -- whether this is a
bug or a (typographic) feature, I dare not say. Might be you'd like to
contact Markus Kohm about this?


At least there was no corresponding reaction.
