  Launcher Overlaps the lxpanel after RTL Language Change

Status in LXDE:
Status in lxpanel package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in lxpanel source package in Xenial:
  Fix Released

Bug description:

  Without this fix, users who use a RTL language in Lubuntu are left
  with panel icons that overlap each other, which could potentially make
  the panel unusable.

  [Test Case]

  See the original description.

  [Regression Potential]

  Very little, but either underlying changes in the GTK libraries or
  changes in the RTL language packages have the potential to affect this
  in a negative way (which would also be present in other areas).

  [Original Description]

   1. Open Language Support (/usr/bin/gnome-language-selector)
   2. When asked to install additional language support, do it
   3. Install some RTL language (e.g. Arabic)
   4. Move Arabic ( العربية) to the top of the list
   5. Close the dialog
   6. Log out and log back in

  The language becomes the default system language without any other effects.

  The application launch bar partially overlaps the menu icon in lxpanel.
