Create a user name with RTL characters only.
Between the links for your user page and for your talk page there will be no space.
Best regards [[user:gangleri]]

bug 3956: BiDi: hide user icon also in wikis with LTR content language when a
RTL user interface is selected
changed to *WORKSFORME*
I tried usernames containing RTL characters both with and without spaces inbetween.
I could not reproduce the error neiter at FiverAlpha ( http://test.leuksman.com/
) Nor at [[:en:]]

Reopened after tests with different usernames. See very special usernames at
*note* IE seem to work fine.
see screen dump
from (test bugzilla)
If a fix / workaround can be found it should handle also:
Bug 4225: BiDi: user icon might be shown twice in IE
this bug depends on
Bug 4236: BiDi support for the personal toolbar
removed direct dependency to bug 745
Bug 745: RTL/bidirectional issues (tracking)
dependency blocks bug 4236 changed to
depending from bug 4236
Adding "testme" keyword, as this is years ago and the leuksman.com test wiki no longer exists.
Seems to work now, with the same user name, English interface, both Monobook and Vector, both IE 9 and Firefox. Marking WORKSFORME.
