I don't have a lot of stuff installed to test, but this is what I did

In gedit C-f and C-b move forward and backward logically, whereas LEFT
and RIGHT move left and right visually.  I suspect that all παν語 (aka
pango) apps -- notably including most gtk/gnome apps -- will also do so.

In seamonkey, in a web-page's text input box, both the arrow keys and
the C-b and C-f keys move visually.

In gvim, both the h and l keys and the arrow keys move visually.

In Openoffice.org, the arrow keys move logically.

Someone with KDE installed should test koffice and/or kwriter.
