In RTL languages, the text is aligned to the left, but curly braces

For example, the following code:
static int Main(string args)

Looks like a pango rendering issue.
I have the same issue, would be great to fix it.
other than that, I really love this IDE
It's a pango issue :/
@Cody: Can we patch pango (at least on os x) so that curly braces are always displayed as LTR ? Shouldn't affect the bounding box much.
I was looking at this one today, and I'm not able to reproduce the original issue but I'm able to reproduce some other issues. The braces looked to be rendering in the correct direction for me, but all my indentation was lost and it was impossible for me to indent my braces because I can't select to the left side of a brace. In fact, if I hit Cmd-A it becomes obvious that it is drawing the indentation tabs, but on the right side of the braces instead of the left.
Based on Cody's comment above, I am marking this a not reproducible. Please file new bug reports for other issues brought up in comment #5
