[XeTeX] polyglossia/bidi -- footnote rule alignment

I'm using the package polyglossia to typeset documents in Urdu, a
right-to-left language. Polyglossia uses the bidi package whose
documentation implies that the footnote rule is right-aligned when the
footnote is in the middle of some right-to-left text. But the footnote rule
is appearing aligned to the left anyway.

Here is an example:

%\rightfootnoterule   %force footnote rule to right
\footnote{یونانی فلسفی}

Unless the commented statement is uncommented, the footnote rule shows up on
the left.
