Description Mohamed SAAD 2006-10-19 15:58:32 UTC
Version:           3.5.5 (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

Well 
i am translating po files to arabic.
As you know there are keyboard accelerators in kbabel etc...
like this &Open, &Quit etc...

in arabic you need sometime to put an accent on a letter like
say the letter R , if you want it to be pronounced Ra Ran or Ro see below.
    ر
    رُ
رّ
رً
 
now if the & sigh is added before that letter say &Ro then the result after converting to MO file is RRo
in arabic : 
 رُد

now with accelerator i will see :
ررُدّ
notice the duplicated ر

To be short , with an & sign there is duplication of accentuated arabic letters.
non accentuated are correctly accelerated.
that's it.

Regards,
Mohamed SAAD

Hello,

Can you still reproduce the bug with the latest KDE 4 release?

Thanks.
