Launch QGIS master
Create a map composer
Add a map
Add a scale bar you'll align on right with the map
In scale bar properties, Set the Reference point at Right Up Checkbox
In map properties, change the scale value
The scale bar will be resized but there'll no more be alignment. whatever reference point you choose, when zooming in/out, the scale bar is resized considering the left side as its origin.

In QGIS 2.4, it is inversed : the right side is considered as the anchor point whatever reference point you choose.

This is a bit annoying when you are using atlas with no fixed scale and need to have items aligned. The reference point checked might be the one that anchors the resizing of the scale bar.

I don't know if this is an inplemented feature that is bugging but I think this use-case is the one any user is expecting to have there so I choose to report it as bug.

[composer] Respect reference point when resizing scalebar and legend

Previously, the reference point (and data defined position/size) were
ignored when scalebars or legends resized themselves.
