Bug#410487: desktop-base: kdm greeter layout incorrect for RTL languages

Package: desktop-base
Version: 4.0.0
Severity: normal
Tags: l10n

I don't normally use the KDE themes (only had a taste of it becuase of
the broken KDE 3.5.5 upload), and this may be a bug in kdm instead, but:

In the debian-moreblue theme, when a right-to-left (RTL) language such
as Hebrew, Arabic, Farsi, etc. is used, the textbox captions are on the
left and the textboxes themeselve are on the right, as in a LTR
language. However, a RTL speaker would expect the captions on the right
and the textboxes on the left (the natural direction of his/her
language). This is somewhat disconcerting/annoying. Moreover, the
default KDE greater which I use does _not_ suffer from this problem.
