Arabic font , we found that dash (-) character automatic added .

I checked with m18 on Ubuntu Maverick and I confirm the bug. It seems the
expanding is still using the old algroithm of dashes instead of spaces. This was
fixed before text justification "Justified".

MRU->HDU: can confirm this on Windows also. See attached document, the character
spacing is "Expanded by 3 pt" - there are unnecessary lines between the
characters. A competing WordProcessor does not show these.

Expanded/Condensed spacing doesn't make sense for cursive scripts.
