Yes, see my other message in this thread.  Emacs is searching for the
beginning of the paragraph, but this whole buffer is one huge
paragraph.  The manual explains the significance of the paragraph
direction for the bidirectional display, in case you are interested in
the details.

M-: (setq bidi-display-reordering nil) RET

After the first time, "M-: M-p" will avoid typing the whole stuff

This is on purpose: I don't think this should be a user-level
variable.  (Of course, for this to make sense, the display should be
reasonably responsive, and it is my intention to make it so, given
that the problems will be reported.)
