[Bug 943104] Re: recipient address: comma inserted when pressing AltGr


This bug is still present in Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf (development

Both alt and altgr produces an unexpected comma character when pressed
after other msc. characters in the "to" and "cc" input fields in
evolution mail.  Using danish keyboard with nodeadkey.

I still haven't been able to reproduce this in any other programs than
evolution, so the bug should probably be reported on evolution instead.
However I have created a new bug as suggested in #34.
