Here's a slightly clearer description of the problem:

.test {
    width: 180px;
    height: 20px;
    border: 1px solid black;
    white-space: nowrap;
    overflow: hidden;
    margin: 0 0 20px 0;

.ellipsis {

<div class="test ellipsis" dir=RTL>

The directionality of the div dictates the side that the ellipsis will be drawn
on, in this case the left side of the text.

This case differs from what's currently handled in the code since the
difference in directionality means we need to truncate from the START of the
text run.

Therefore the correct truncation should look something like:

This is also true for the opposite case (ltr aligned div containg an RTL text
