Help with Pasting of RTL languages into a field

I have a test stack with a single scrolling field under LC904rc2. The
textDirection for the field is the default of "auto" meaning it should
align LTR languages (like English) to the Left and RTL languages (like
Arabic or Hebrew) to the Right.
English and other LTR test is correctly Left aligned. When I paste in
RTL text (Arabic for example) it is incorrectly Left aligned. I am not
sure if this is a 'paste' issue (tried the 'paste' command in a button
and just using Ctrl-V in the IDE) or a field issue? Or even how to tell?
Does anyone else have experience with pasting RTL text from other
applications (Word, Web pages, Google Translate, etc.) into LiveCode to
have it align properly?
