Could be, yes.  I actually thought about this possibility, but didn't
mention it because I couldn't come up with a scenario where that bug
could have triggered such strange problems, and only in bidi.c.  But
it does no harm to try applying that patch first, and only apply this
one if that doesn't help.

Yes, but you need memory allocation in the picture to have that, and I
see no such allocation in the sequence of calls we saw in the
backtraces.

Still, "the proof of the pudding is in eating"...

Thanks.
