We have some BiDi problems, but as you said this is a bug and can be fixed.
(Working fine though in mlterm [1] ).

We decided to stay with English because there is no Hebrew documentation
regarding the terminal, hence users who will try to look for help in forums,
Google, etc, won't find anything.
We also got some input from users who said that Hebrew in the terminal is
the main reason why they don't use the Hebrew locale as a whole.
