So you are saying that djvmono.bdf font (or maybe BDF fonts in
general) make the bidirectional text look in the correct order, while
other fonts don't?  My guess would be that Ghostscript is reordering
the text, I see a bidi module in its sources.  So I think the key to
this puzzle is to use Ghostscript.
