Its a bug in the Adobe SVG plugin. The SVG spec talks in terms of characters in logical order in the backing store and is thus unaffected by bidi rendering.

(You probably also noticed another bug, where the correct arabic form of the characters is not displayed).

That's a good test, can we use it in the test suite? What does the text say?
