It is the very intention of this code to split runs on neutral
characters; that is not a bug. The issue here is that the directional
properties of neutral characters are dictated by their context, a
space, for instance, can behave both as an ltr and rtl character,
depending on what preceeds it and follows it.
The code in question took the way of easiest resistance, which I did
not appreaciate would be so costly; I can think of a way to
substantially optimize it and will do so over the weekend.
