RTL doesn't work

My interface language in TWN is Hebrew. It used to work mostly well in RTL, but a few days something became broken, and now TWN is LTR-oriented. Can anyone fix it, please?

I have it enabled, but it doesn't help.

Possibly related: since the deployment of Mediawiki 1.17, some of the interface for rtl languages in Wikipedia is broken. For example, the edit box for links has the labelling set up ltr.

Is there a bug report about this?

Sorry to say, but the entire handling of multiple languages, and directionality in MediaWiki is broken by design. Crap like this will keep to creep in all the time unless we dare a complete rewrite of message handling and html generating.
