Thu 04 Sep 2014 05:10:55 PM UTC, original submission:

When applications output U+200F RIGHT-TO-LEFT MARK or U+200E LEFT TO RIGHT MARK, screen's display becomes garbled. These are reasonably common in e-mail and somewhat less so in web pages.

If you have w3m, the attached HTML file will demonstrate the problem with the latest version in HEAD (as of this writing). Debian bug #655589 contains materials for demonstrating the problem by catting a recorded session or by using mutt.
