I am not sure what is the actual problem but I can tell you what bidi does.
bidi does the following:

1- makes l and r logical such that l means always left and r always means
right (in both RTL and LTR).

2- bidi automatically puts tikzpicture and pspicture envoronments in LTR
mode mainly for two reasons:
a) RTL picture environment does not make sense.
b) XeTeX in RTL mode, with \special has bugs and tikz and pstricks both uses
\special so we have no other choice but putting pspicture and tikzpicture
inside LTR mode.
