I am using scrartcl with the twopage option to get a two sided document. The result is as desired.

If I change the pagenumbering after the first few pages (title page, list of contents, ...) from roman to arabic the pagecounter is resetted. This is desired as well. however, what I don't want is that the orientation of the page (left/right) is resetted as well. How can i avoid this?

Here is a mimimal working example:

\documentclass[twoside]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\begin{document}

\pagenumbering{Roman}
\section{right page, as it should be}
\blindtext \blindtext \blindtext 
\newpage

\section{left page, as it should be}
\blindtext \blindtext \blindtext 
\newpage

\section{right page, as it should be}
\blindtext \blindtext \blindtext 
\newpage

\pagenumbering{arabic}

\section{right page again. this should be a left page}
\blindtext \blindtext \blindtext 
\newpage

\end{document}

This question has also been asked here and there where the answer was provided (see also below).

Just put in a \cleardoublepage. Page 1 will be after a blank page. Apparently it is bad style to have page 1 on the left...
