You mean, with other fonts that support Arabic shaping the problem
doesn't happen?

>From the doc string of bidi-paragraph-direction:

  If this is nil (the default), the direction of each paragraph is
  determined by the first strong directional character of its text.
  The values of ‘right-to-left’ and ‘left-to-right’ override that.
  Any other value is treated as nil.
  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Did you set it to t on purpose?  If so, can you explain why?

What happens if bidi-paragraph-direction is set to one of the valid
values?

Can you run Emacs under a debugger and see what value of 'dir' do we
come up with in this snippet from ftfont.c:

  hb_direction_t dir = HB_DIRECTION_INVALID;
  if (EQ (direction, QL2R))
    dir = HB_DIRECTION_LTR;
  else if (EQ (direction, QR2L))
    dir = HB_DIRECTION_RTL;
  /* If the caller didn't provide a meaningful DIRECTION, let HarfBuzz
     guess it.  */
  if (dir != HB_DIRECTION_INVALID)
    hb_buffer_set_direction (hb_buffer, dir);

Do we call hb_buffer_set_direction, and if so, with what value?

Thanks.
