Hi,

Running this file under luatex 11.2 on amd64
fails, with "segmentation fault, probably due to
infinite macro recursion".

----------------------
\pardir TLT
\textdir TLT 
This is some text
\textdir TRT 
and this is too.


\halign{%
\textdir  TLT #&\textdir TRT#\cr
This and&that\cr}


---------------------
Grouping the first paragraph fixes it.

Also, it seems to me that eTeX treats alignment
with directional instructions more sensibly:

---------------------
\TeXXeTstate=1
\halign{%
\beginL#\endL&\beginR#\endR\cr
This and&that\cr
}
---------------------

Thanks, eythan
