I have a similar problem with qemu (all versions including 5.0.0) on 
MacOS-10.14.6 (mac book pro 2017with touch bar).

Using -k fr-mac the "@"/"#" key is dead.
Showkey doesn't detect the key.
Moreover, the # and @ symbols are mapped on the "<" / ">" key and thus I miss 
the redirection operator in shell.
