The idea is that the "leading side" of RtoL interfaces is on the right.
GTK takes charge of this, based on $LC_ALL for known RtoL locales. So
yes, turning the whole thing around, putting the menus above the right
side, is the correct behavior, just as having left side menus is
appropriate for more common LtoR locales.

Any GTK-based application should get similar behavior.

Again, GTK controls. Obviously, there's some question as to how much
the Windows version of GTK is coping with this: From Matthew's last
screenshot under Windows, GTK clearly was aware enough to engage the
localization of strings (notice menu titles in Farsi) but the interface
was not RtoL. So something is amiss.
