Bug Description

In LibreOffice 3.3 on OS X 10.6.6

When I copied Mixed Hebrew/English text from FireFox to LibreOffice, the RLE mark was printed instead of setting the directionality.
Attached a PNG with the text written with UbuntuHebrewBeta and with OS X own Arial Hebrew font.

This seems like an application bug to me, Unicode complaint layout engines should not render a visible whether the font has a glyph in that slot or not (it is actually recommended that the font contain a glyph for such control characters for applications that have a special "show control characters" mode).
