Bug Description

distribution: Trusty tahr

Even though I'm using the Arabic language, this is not how the clock should be displayed.

The clock still works well (currently: 9:33) but the only problem is that it appears inverted as you see in the picture above. Also, the date is correct and written in the correct format.

I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, gnome shell version 3.10.4.
According to the settings, Ubuntu identifies the Arabic language (Lebanon) correctly:
