Thanks for researching it.  We may be unable to fix it for 1.0 but we
should definitely address it.

Debian has a similar bug:

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=917909

The

https://salsa.debian.org/mckinstry/newt/blob/debian/master/debian/README.Debian

says:

Debian's version of newt include Bidirectional text support not yet present
upstream, including an API addition "newtCheckboxSetWidth". Please only use
this within Debian until it is supported upstream.

There is a

https://salsa.debian.org/mckinstry/newt/blob/debian/master/debian/patches/bidi.patch

However, I do not know how to use this.

Florian

Ouch, good point!  I have no idea what it takes to display RTL languages
properly.  AFAIK =E2=80=98gettext=E2=80=99 simply returns a string, so I gu=

Language names for Arabic, Farsi, Hebrew are shown Left-to-Right (LTR)
instead of Right-to-Left, e.g. =D8=A7=D9=84=D8=B9=D8=B1=D8=A8=D9=8A=D8=A9=
 is displayed wrongly as =E2=80=AD=D8=A7=D9=84=D8=B9=D8=B1=D8=A8=D9=8A=D8=
=A9=E2=80=AC.
