Description Said Bakr 2014-01-30 21:56:55 UTC
Problem description: 
Writing Arabic text leads to jamming of keyboard response on hitting the spacebar. I even tried to stop spell and grammar checking but without any solution for this issue. 
Steps to reproduce:
1. Running Writer to create new document.
2. ALT + Right SHIFT to allow writing in Arabic.
3. CTRL + Right SHIFT to change text direction to be RTL
4. Writing any text quickly.
5. Hitting the spacebar to make space between text.

Current behavior:
The Cursor stop moving and writing and it looks like jammed or stopped for some time (it vary depending on the amount of text entered before hitting the spacebar), after that, spontaneously, it moves again and enter the extra text entered after hitting the spacebar. 
Expected behavior:
It should act like writing the English text.

Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release

Dear Said,

Thank you for bringing this to our notice. It seems another bug has been reported which is the same and it effects both arabic and asian characters, so i'm closing your bug as a duplicate of that one.

When i investigated the issue, i found out that if i dont install the arabic dictionary, this problem wont arise.
