The possibility of controling pass direction can helps to avoid some problems and prevent ddrescue to go over an unwanted area for twice (when it turns from forwards to backwards, per example),

Even if all passes are made in the same direction, ddrescue will go twice per pass over any area (unwanted or not) that is between rescue domain extremes, because it must go back to the beginning to start the next pass.

There is a way to make ddrescue perform the copy phase in just one pass, and therefore in one direction; disable skipping with '--skip-size=0'.

Please, tell me if this solves your problem.
