Thanks for taking care of bugs reported in Debian!

Nevertheless, in this case, the fix might have broken something else
as it probably caused the following regression reported in Debian

Citing from there:

  Bi-directional text rendering is broken. See

  [screenshots skipped, can be found in the bug report]

  With lynx 2.8.9dev9-1, the exclamation mark is no longer at the
  correct place. With lynx 2.8.9dev8-4, there was also an issue: the
  replacement characters after "the order of the Hebrew characters

  Note: in the same mlterm, the w3m browser is OK.

I can't reproduce the regression in an uxterm since it always seems to
show the exclamation mark at the end, independent of the lynx version.

(mlterm shows the exclamation mark indeed at different places, but
only shows boxes instead of hebrew characters for me.)

                Kind regards, Axel
