Do you have the KDE Keyboard Layout Switcher activated? (System settings --> 
Regional and Language --> Keyboard Layout)

You could get this behavior the english keyboard is set to the "alt-intl" 
variant, since alt-intl allows you to compose characters with umlauts, etc.

To correct you could just change the variant to nothing (blank), or add a new 
layout to the list.
