The bug occurs only with RTL languages. I don't see the wavy red underline that should mark the misspelled words. However, the spellchecker detects that words are misspelled and suggests appropriate corrections when right-clicking to see the context menu.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable automatic spellchecking, and set the correct language for the paragraph.
2. Write something misspelled in Hebrew or Arabic (should be RTL language).
3. For comparison, repeat the same for English, or any other LTR language.
RTL misspellings are detected, but a red wavy underline marking is not shown. Context menu offers appropriate corrections.
LTR misspellings are detected, and a red wavy underline marking is shown. Context menu offers appropriate corrections.
Both RTL and LTR misspellings marked by a red wavy underline.

Resetting UserProfile did not help.
Turning on/off hardware acceleration, and/or anti-aliasing, did not affect the problem.
Turning on/off automatic spell checking did not not affect the problem.
Changing fonts, or text alignment (logical or visual) does not affect the problem.
Tested with: English, French, Russian, Greek, Hebrew and Arabic. Only Hebrew and Arabic reproduce the bug since they're RTL (unlike the rest which are LTR).
