Yes, I can reproduce it with mozilla 1.7.8 linux.
This testcase attempts to explain what's going on. In the first paragraph, the red border only surrounds "cde", as expected. In the second paragraph, the "cde" inside the second span is followed by an RTL character, which, in accordance with the bidi algorithm, is placed to the left of the first ("abc") span. This causes the second span to extend leftwards, "covering" the first span. The third paragraph is the most similar to the original testcase. Instead of an RTL character, there is a space following the "cde". This space is treated as an RTL character (in accordance with the bidi algorithm), so the end result is similar to the second pagaraph. Given this explanation, I'm not sure whether the bug is valid or not.
Sorry - the second and third paragraphs are reversed in the testcase vis-à-vis the description in comment #4.
This could be a dupe of bug 178991
(In reply to comment #6) > This could be a dupe of bug 178991 Yes, after looking into it I'm convinced that this is a dupe. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 178991 ***
