You are probably not using RTL mode.

For that you need to have the string "LTR" translated as "RTL" in the gtk2
I looked at Gnome CVS and there isn't any ar.po file yet...

Create a file like this:

msgid ""
msgstr ""
"Project-Id-Version: gtk2+ VERSION\n"
"POT-Creation-Date: 2002-02-21 21:51+0200\n"
"PO-Revision-Date: 2002-02-21 21:51+0200\n"
"Last-Translator: your name\n"
"Language-Team: Arabic\n"
"MIME-Version: 1.0\n"
"Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8\n"
"Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit\n"

msgid "default:LTR"
msgstr "default:RTL"

and compile it: msgfmt -o /usr/share/locale/ar/LC_MESSAGES/ yourfile

then the default layout of widgets should be in RTL ("file" menu at right
and "help" menu at left, "previous" button at right, with an arrow to the
right, "next" button at left with an arrow to the left, etc)
