[Evolution] Evolution places quoted text in a table, when replying sometimes

I noticed that when replying to certain e-mails, Evolution places the
quoted text of the original e-mail in a table. This makes commenting
in-line in my reply a bit frustrating. 

I'm using Evolution but have heard the same complaint from
someone using Evolution 2.28.3. I've filed a bug[1] after looking for an
open one on bugzilla. 

As a work around, I normally:
- highlight the text in the table/cell press ctrl+c to copy it the the
- open a plain old text editor; 
- press ctrl+v to paste the text to the text editor; 
- go back to evolution's composer and delete the table (either by just
pressing delete until the I'm sure that it is gone or right clicking the
table and choosing the delete table option; 
- go back to the text editor and press ctrl+a, then ctrl+c to copy the
text to the clipboard without formatting;
- go to evolution's composer and press ctrl+shift+v to paste as quoted

It may seem like a lot of steps but it takes less than a second if I
already have a text editor open. However, the fact that this workaround
is necessary to accomplish my task is annoying. 

If someone knows of a better way to be able to reply with in-line
comments in this situation when using evolution, please let me know.
