punting to Trevor to see what he thinks.
That isn't a "different" toolbar per say, it's the default. I have a feeling it maybe to do with the script error indicated in your status bar preventing it from loading the extension.
Per comments in jquery.wikiEditor.js:
// The toolbar layout is broken in IE 7 in RTL mode, and IE6 in any mode
Looks like it's blacklisted as known broken; WikiEditor with full toolbar will show on RTL in IE 8 and higher. In a quick test, I can definitely confirm it's very broken in 7, so disabling it is the correct expected behavior. (This should be listed in the testing compatibility matrix.)
