Wrong Spaces Positing for Arabic Text

When writing in Arabic, Writer for Mac OS X puts space at the beginning of line not at the end of it. Please see the attached screenshot which visualizes the bug.

This bug mostly affects mixed text, i.e. that contains latin and arabic alphanumeric. For example, a phrase like "test اختبار" appears as "testاختبار" without a space between the two words.

The bug also breaks the right alignment of Arabic text.
