Not "incorrectly", in any case.  In the summary buffer, it is actually
precisely what is needed.  But in other Gnus buffers, notably the ones
that show the text of messages and articles, the display will be less
than optimal, when the message is mostly composed of R2L text.  Still
legible, though.  These Gnus buffers will need to reset the paragraph
direction to nil, to present the text in an optimal manner.
