Ah ok, now I get what happens.

This means this:

    <set text dir to TLT>
    <leave vertical mode>
    <add indentation box>
    <add "4">
    <restore text dir to TRT>

So, actually, the indentation box is in TLT mode, meaning it appears
'after' 4 in TRT reading order. I do not think this is a bug after all,
just a weird result of what is actually quite logical behaviour.

Best wishes,
