[libreoffice-l10n] LO 4.1.2 Hebrew parentheses bug

I just updated to LO 4.1.2 (English US) on Intel Mac OS X 10.7.5 and the parentheses mapping for Hebrew text seems to be broken. When I switch the input language to Hebrew, the parentheses are reversed when I use the Times New Roman font... However, some Hebrew fonts appear to be working properly.

Could this be a continuation of this problem:
http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/18912/bidirectional-text-and-closing-bracket-bug/

The most logical way to map the parenthesis is that the button 9 should give a left parenthesis and the button 0 should give a right parenthesis, regardless of OS input language, document language, or text direction. This is the way Hebrew behaves in other Mac applications such as TextEdit and Mail...


Please advise whether this bug is able to be fixed, and if there is anything I can do on my install to fix it.


Thank you in advance for your time and attention.

Best regards,

Gabriel Kaufman
