Right to Left formating in Map Composer

Category:Map Composer/Printing
Affected QGIS version:2.2.0 Regression?:No

Pull Request or Patch supplied:No Resolution:fixed/implemented
Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:18612


When entering mixed Hebrew and English text with some punctuation characters in a text box, the order of the text gets switched. Apparently the "bidi" algorithm is not applied.
Probably the same issue will occur with mixed Arabic/English text.

The attached image shows the problem.

In earlier versions (1.8), text box formatting of mixed language titles was perfect.
