text for many years now.
Again: I am using GUI vim, not Console vim. The 'termbidi' option
The problem seems to be related to the ATSUI renderer, at least there
are some hints in 'gui_mac.c' that indicate this might be true. It
may be a good thing to set "kATSULineDirectionTag" so the drawing
occurs correctly, but I don't know enough about Mac GUI to know what
to do exactly.
If noone else chimes in with helpful information, I'll try to fix it
