Book list: Entering alt-code in metadata cell fails

Bug Description

Calibre 5.14* (x64, run from source)

Steps to reproduce:

1. Select title cell and press F2 to edit.
2. Try to enter the alt-code Alt+0151 for an em-dash.

Partway through keying it in, the edit gets cancelled and the focus switches to the last column (a composite for Calibre's internal book ID). I'm not sure if this is intended or not.

Fortunately I am able to insert it in Edit Metadata.
