The new Shutdown and Log out Dialogs are having some problems with Right-to-Left locales like Arabic, Persian, Hebrew and Urdu!

See attached screen shot...

The title must aligned to right!

The first part of text (in red circle) is hidden!

As part of the big bug review for 16.04 LTS I have tested this on 15.10 and the bug is still there.

While I can't read this language, the gap in text appears to still be there. Can a speaker of this language confirm this?

Hi Alex, it got worse.
It used to start with "Illaliqa" (Goodbye), now it only starts with "Lliqa"

It probably happens with Hebrew as well, If someone can attach a screenshot that would be great.

We now have a screenshot for 15.04 with the help of Shlomi Fish.

Same issues, "Ot" (Broken) instead of "Lehitra'ot"

I am Arabic (a speaker of language in first screenshot), and I am a reporter of this bug.

I confirm that the gap in text is still there, and don't forget that the title must aligned to right too.
