Package: gtk-qt-engine
Version: 1:0.8~svn-rev36-2
Severity: normal
Tags: l10n

This bug came out of the discussion for bug #439559. You can read there for
more background. In short, GTK apps appranetly have some way of indicating
whether they are in Left-to-Right to Right-to-Left mode. gtk-qt fails to report
this, so tool bars will continue to display as if in LTR language environment
rather than a RTL environment, which can cause some icons to be reversed. 

For a quick example, check out and compile Emacs CVS HEAD. Start emacs and open
an info buffer. The forward/back buttons (which are now on the right edge
rather than the left edge) are pointing towards echo other rather than away
from each other. This problem goes away if you you select any other gtk theme I
have installed on my system.

This bug is likely upstream. I'll try to do some more testing if I have the
