Pages, frames, etc. with text direction set to vertical have badly broken rendering on master. The text isn't legible at all.
(126.96.36.199 gets this right)
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a new Writer document
2. In Format - Page - Page, set "Text direction" to "Right-to-left (vertical)"
3. Type any text
See following attachments for an example
It's possible this is OSX only. Could someone with Linux/Windows and a recent build from git please confirm?

Sample vertical text
(This is Japanese, but the bug is not dependent on language)
Thanks for the sample.
Not reproduced with
LO 184.108.40.206 and
Build ID: eddd7646d672ea9b0561dacb09da224d098e531e
TinderBox: Win-x86@39, Branch:master, Time: 2014-07-18_06:42:50
under Windows 7 Home Premium.
So this is looking like OSX only as I initially suspected. Thanks for the (non) reproductions
Although the attached document can be used to reproduce, I apparently left out a necessary step for manually creating vertical text in the first comment
The "Text direction" option in "Format - Page - Page" is only shown if the global setting
"Default Languages for Documents - Asian" is ticked within
"Options - Language Settings - Languages"
I confirm on OS X 10.9.4
LibreOffice Version: 220.127.116.11.alpha0+
I set status to New
