Strange. No problems putting %s in the content here..

Can you try one more time to be completely sure this problem is still
present? First, verify that you're running the latest and greatest.
'dpkg -l evolution-data-server' should give you version 1.10.1-2. Do
the same with libebook1.2-9 and libedata-book1.2-2. Evolution itself
should be version 2.10.1-2.

Try to add new entries with %s, and see if that works. If you have to
do anything else than trivially put %s in the Description field and
click the memo after, please describe that.
