sorry for the annoyance, it should work now also in PDF (SVN 2161), DVI
was fine. There is a test case -- vertical seems to be ok as well:

%\pagedir TRT \bodydir TRT \pardir TRT \textdir TRT
\pagedir LTT \bodydir LTT \pardir LTT \textdir LTT

\hbox to \hsize{l\leaders\hbox{.}\hfill r}
\hbox to \hsize{l\hfill r}

\input tufte
