Status in Ubuntu Manual: Fix Committed

Bug description:
Rev. 788
Ch. 3, § "Running Evolution for the first time", p. 60 (PDF p. 62)
Type: consistency

Almost every paragraph in this section starts with a time indication followed by a comma. But the second paragraph does not follow suit:
When Evolution starts[,] you should see the “Evolution Setup Assistant” window, welcoming you to Evolution. 

Aside from consistency, a comma here helps indicate that "starts" is being used as the intransitive rather than transitive verb "to start", helping machine translations and less able readers.
