As Josh Berkus replied, it's a quoting issue.  I _think_ this is what
you might need (untested)

 $result_update = $db->Execute('UPDATE t_defect SET reworker_id = ' .
 $reworker_id . ', rework_completed = \'t\', rework_notes = \'' .
 $rework_notes . '\', rework_date = '. $db->DBDate(time()) .
 'WHERE t_defect.defect_id = ' . $defect_id );

And the same for rework_date and/or t_defect.defect_id if either should
be a string.

One idea..  if this is in php, or a language that allows the use of
either single or double quotes for strings, I think I'd quote the query
string here with double quotes.  That would make it much easier to catch
the missing single quotes that should appear in the query (and avoid the
need to escape the single quotes.
