I can confirm the behaviour described in the description of this bug report in version 

Note that "z. B. Ein" is grammatically wrong in German, it should be "z. B. ein". 

Please note the space character between "z." and "B." in this German abbreviation. The correct spelling of this abbreviation and other German abbrevations has to contain a space character.

I am using Linux Debian 9.7 ("Stretch") which is the currently stable Debian release.
