Broken Bidi in PuTTY

Simon, I just downloaded the "latest development snapshot" PuTTY binary [1]
and it looks like its Bidi support is either broken or disabled for some
reason (my guess is that it was mistakenly disabled on purpose).  I compared
two snapshots I have,

 + 2004-12-02:r2941  Works great without issues
 + 2004-12-19:r5011  Seems to be broken

I simply looked at a mixed Arabic/English file and it looks like the Arabic
is being rendered properly its just not being flipped so instead of reading
HELLO, I'm seeing OLLEH (given caps are Arabic).

BTW: I haven't forgotten about getting a few people to look at the
     miniBidi code for sanity checks.  M.Elzubeir, M.Sameer - care
     to lend a hand ?

Hope that helps.
