Yes.  This issue has nothing to do with paragraph direction (and the
Gnus summary buffer ought to set bidi-paragraph-direction to
left-to-right anyway).  This issue is about reordering a line of text
that is not really a contiguous text, but rather a series of separate
fields.  Either each field needs to be reordered separately, which can
be done by separating them with TABs, or we need to "fix" the default
reordering (which assumes the whole line is a single piece of text) by
inserting LRM characters in strategical places.
