[XeTeX] bidi & colortbl bug

Hi list,

I think I found a bug in the bidi package which occurs when the colortbl 
package is loaded as well.

The following example fails with the error
"! Extra alignment tab has been changed to \cr."







bla & blub\\
bla & blub\\
\end{tabular} & bla & blub



The example works if any of the following things are done:
  * the hline is commented out
  * the bidi package is not loaded
  * the colortbl package is not loaded

I am using texlive 2009 and checked out the most recent bidi version 
from bitbucket.

Any advise would be appreciated, searching the web and poking around in 
the bidi-code didn't help so far.
