A document that shows the letters get reversed and by omitting the last
characters things go back to normal

Pasting a long paragraph (with no new lines) that span many pages, would stop
at around page 11 on my laptop (but differs from computer to another). The
problem is not just the limit should be more but the serious problem is letters
get reversed. We first encounter this bug while typing Arabic text in an LTR
mode. Then I tested with English in RTL mode.

To reproduce the bug:
1. I opened a blank document.
2. Changed the direction to RTL (Ctrl+Shift+D)
3. typed some English paragraph and copied and pasted it many times
4. at around page 11 or 28 (depending on may be the font type, size, language
and resources the pasting stopped and the English letters get reversed e.g
Munzir Taha showed as ahaT riznuM

Though the bug is not a general use case but it indicates a programming error
somewhere that may even help resolving other unknown issues.
