Bug Description

When I want to write an email address in the "to" field of evolution, I can't get an @. With pressing "Q" and AltGr (German Layout) I get " " + "," instead of @.

Hi Christopher.
-I use Evolution since 14.04. it didn't appear in 14.04. It started appearing when updating to 14.10.
- This Problem occurs just in Evolution. The @ works fine in all other programs I use.

Gerhard Beck, as this is only reproducible in Evolution, let this be assigned to it unless the root cause is shown to be elsewhere.
