Qt bug trimming Arabic strings

Asked by Khalid AlAjaji on 2017-09-19

A bug in Qt causing Arabic strings to be trimmed reported here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/stellarium/+bug/1498616 seems to be solved. See: https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-48005

Can Stellarium incorporate the solution?

Are you meant use qputenv("QT_HARFBUZZ", "old") ; ?

Actually, I have no idea, but the page says that the issue is resolved in 5.6.3. Latest Stellarium beta is based on 5.6.2

The strange thing is that the page says that the bug affects Qt 5.7.0!
