           Summary: Pegasus Mail V 4.12a and V 4.21beta displays reverse
                    text in message window
           Product: Wine
           Version: 20040505
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-x11driver
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: timo.steuerwald at gmx.de

in the following there are copies of two mails which I've sent to the wine-
users list, after a little discussion on the list I think this is a bug and no 
configuration problem.

The first mail:

> Hello together! 
> I got the following problem and I haven't found a solution or bug report
> at the wine site: If I start pegasus mail (I use the latest version:
> 4.12a) I will get "reverse text" in the preview mirror at the down right
> side. This means the content of the email (only the body, not the subject
> or recipient list) is written from the right side to the left side. If I
> now open an email via the menu button or double click to get a separate
> full-size window for this mail then there will be also subject and
> recipient list in "reverse text style", the body will be displayed just
> like in the preview window. 
> If I write a new mail, then the text will also go from the right to the
> left side, but if I now select another font i.e. "Century Gothic" the text
> will be displayed properly.  If I now change back to Arial font (the
> default) then the text will be again displayed from right to left. So it
> looks like a simple font problem, but where should I change something to
> fix this problem?  - I wonder, because the Arial font works perfect under
> X in i.e. Open Office. Also in Pegasus Mail in the menu, editfields (the
> single line text fields) and so on is IMHO the Arial font used, there
> appears no problem. This problem seems to be textarea (multiline text
> fields) specific. 
> This error appears if I use the managed or the desktop mode (unmanaged
> don't work for me with this application). I use Wine version
> 0.0.20040505-1 and use a native Windows 98 SE System for the emulation. 
> Any ideas? 
> Bye, 
> Timo 

Part of the second mail, may be a important information:

> Because I also verified this error on a plain wine only windows emulation  
>  (without an real windows system) and with the new beta version of pegasus  
>  (V 4.21 from 3 May 2004) I will additionally open a new bug report 
> in  
>  the next days.
