I have grepped the code and found no more instances of this hippo reverse() in sugar:

src/jarabe/journal/                             reverse=(self._sort[0] == '-'))
src/jarabe/model/            windows.reverse()

First is a parameter for the python list sort() method, second is Wnck .

  • Keywords r+ added; r? removed

Works and code looks good, please push.

Thanks for checking occasions in the rest of the code base.

The journal is still accessible if the language is set to Arabic in Sugar 0.98.2/OLPC 13.1.0 os20.
