When plasma is running in RTL mode (test with --reverse) the taskbar should be aligned to the right and not left.

While 172559 are similar, and 172559 is the real bug IMHO closing this bug is an easy hack which can help us getting a working taskbar for 4.2.

Even without making the QGraphicsLinearLayout aware of the QLayoutDirection, we can fix the taskbar to behave as needed. I think (did not test) that the taskbar will have the correct width on RTL desktops, so we can just align the tasks to the right and fake it "good enough" until we resolve the issues in QGraphics*Layout.
