Argh... sorry for the empty email.

I believe to trigger the change of reading order, you have
to press the ctrl+right-shift and release it (without
pressing any other key.)

Similarly ctrl+left-shift will trigger a change.

It took me forever to figure out what it was that I
was doing that was ending up with everything typing
backwards... I just learned to live with it for the
longest time before I figured it out (which does
make the comment about making this setting sticky
particularly accurate.)
