No. It should work and because it is a very common command it seems to
work for others.

Please provide a minimal example how to reproduce this problem. Start
with a clean emacs instance with nothing loaded but evil (simply run
`make emacs` or `make term` in evil's source directory). Then provide
some keystrokes that demonstrate the problem. If you succeed in
providing an example, please consider submitting a bug report [1].

Best regards,
