Bug#608523: kdm greeter layout incorrect for RTL laguages

Package: desktop-base
Version: 5.0.6
Severity: normal
Tags: lenny

Hi.  I apologize for creating what's essentially a duplicate of bug 410487.
Somehow I missed the original email from two years ago, and since the email one
month ago, it's only now that I've had some time to configure a machine to use
a recent version of desktop-base/kdm and the default theme.  In the mean time,
that old bug was closed and archives, and it appears can no longer be modified.
However, I've reporduced this issue with the squeeze desktop-base and kdm, so
I'm filing a new bug. 

My original description of the bug:

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.
