With CTL mode enabled, typing in one direction and inserting a few words in a
language in the other direction changes the direction as it should. The
issue is that when starting the alternate language sentence with a neutral
character (a non-letter character), that neutral character is still rendered
in the old direction.

For example, typing a sentence in a RTL language (e.g. Hebrew) and inserting
a UNIX path (e.g. /usr/bin/soffice) will render the first / at the end of
the path. Manually inserting a LTR marker before the path fixes this.

Is there a way to automatically insert these markers when the user types a
neutral character with the keyboard set to the alternate language? This  is what the
difference looks like.
