No, Windows.

What is your value of system-configuration-options?

Only at the beginning of the file.  Try the same near the end, and you
will see that both are very slow: a single C-n or C-p takes about 2
sec with bidi-display-reordering at nil, and 4 to 5 sec with non-nil.
Not a very spectacular speedup.

It means that we kept the non-reordering code for testing purposes
only, so it is very rarely executed, and thus less reliable than the
rest of Emacs.

Yes, that's what I recommend.
