how the page numbering looks after scrolling to page 2

When in the arabic UI, when i open up a document 'page 1 / X' is right aligned as it should be, but if i scroll down to page 2, it becomes left aligned. A work around is to press alt+tab twice, which bring it back to right aligned, but if i scroll to another page, it goes back to left aligned.

1) Change to Arabic UI
2) Open Writer
3) Press Ctrl+Enter to make a second page
4) Look at statusbar page numbering, it is left aligned

Tested in 4.2.6, 4.3.2 and master in Linux and Windows.

I see it happening in portable.

Is it still happening in newer versions?

Tested it on Windows is master and it seems fine. 5.1alpha1 2015-05-30 @62

Issue is still present and now happens on all fields in the status bar on Windows and Linux.

When testing on:

Build ID: 1:5.4.2-3~bpo9+1
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 4.9; UI render: default; VCL: gtk2; 
Locale: en-US (en_US.utf8); Calc: group

OS: Debian 64bit Stretch (Debian 9.2, with some backported packages)

using Hebrew UI:

The "page 1 from 1" is left aligned even before entering any page break.
Also "0 words, 0 characters" and "default style" (the first three fields form the right side). (the text messages actually appear in Hebrew)

The "Alt+Tab" trick to right align the status line fields does not fix the alignment of those fields, because my desktop (Xfce4) intercepts it.
