[XeTeX] memoir and bidi

I was having problems formatting captions in a complex document I am 
preparing with memoir--the commands were ignored.  Some internet 
searching revealed that sometimes other packages do things (such as 
loading the caption package internally) that interfere with memoir's own 
caption functions.  My document is mainly English with some bits of 
Hebrew, for which I use bidi; and commenting out bidi in the preamble 
enables memoir's caption commands to work.  I have the most recent 
versions of both packages.

The memoir manual says (19.2, p. 352) that memoir supports bidi.  But 
there is clearly a problem with captions.  Any suggestions?

Thanks - David
