While examining still struggling to find some way of forcing the realbristles to actually be useable with a standard wacom pen for someone left handed i found this bug (i seem to recall noticing it before but ignoring as it's not something i use that much, but now it may have somethign to do with the unuseability of realbristles, and their apparently arbitrary angling).

Using several of the dab types setting the angle control's expression to "Direction" results in constant twisting and incorrect direction evaluation as the direction changes accross from horizontal to vertical and back again. This is a basic "flat" dab brush, without realbristles, and it's angle expresion set to direction, and the "Direction randomness" set to 0 just drawing a absic circle:

and here's roughly the shape it should have been (using a "circular" dab type and the same settings) :

This also affects several other dab types include the palette knives.
