ODT file with a text box

The default text of a PDF text field exported from ODT is not shown properly when this text is in Hebrew.

The attached sample contains such an ODT, export it to PDF to see that does not show Hebrew, unless the field is clicked.

My PDF reader (FoxIt Reader) shows an overlay light-blue fill with the text backwards (so like הקידב), which disappears and reveals the correct text when clicked.
But yeah, it's not correct, and LO v5.2.1.2 / Windows 7 produces such a PDF.

I tested in:

Version: 6.0.0.0.alpha1+
Build ID: 9050854c35c389466923f0224a36572d36cd471a
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 4.9; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
Locale: en-US (en_US.utf8); Calc: group

OS: Debian 64bit Stretch (Debian 9.2, with some backported packages)


When it opened the demo.odt file, the text in the Text Field was displayed left justified with correct RTL order.
After export to the PDF file, the text was displayed right justified with correct RTL order.

I couldn't reproduce this bug on the 6.1.1.2 on Win10.
Printed to pdf using MS print to PDF. output as expected.
Was it fixed?
