No, it means that in Hebrew or Arabic text, the right arrow should
move right, not forward in the string.

When I switch GtkEntry over to GtkBindingSet, I will make GDK_KP_RIGHT
behave the same as GDK_RIGHT. I will NOT try to deal with
second-guessing the keyboard configuration.

The standard setup for XFree86 treats Shift + GDK_KP_RIGHT as a 6.
We should insert a 6 into the buffer. If you want something different,
configure your keyboard that way.

Hope this settles the issue.
