A reproducible test case, preferably starting with "emacs -Q", would
be greatly appreciated.

Sorry, I don't understand.  Your original example included a line in
ARABIC and an empty line, in addition to "First" and "second" lines.
Are we talking about a different example now?  If not, please show how
the example is rendered in its entirety, in the two different
behaviors you observe.

Could you pots a backtrace when in crashes?

For your original example:

 * First
 [BLANK_LINE]
 ARABIC
 * Second

the correct rendering is this:

 * First
 [BLANK_LINE]
                        CIBARA
                      Second *

For the example you show now:

 * First
 * Second

the correct rendering is what you'd expect:

 * First
 * Second
