The problem might be the terminal: the fact that it's dealing with 
right-to-left correctly makes it seem that the terminal just can't 
display the hebrew characters. If you're using one of the kernel tty's, 
you might try starting X and using xterm.

Hope that helps. If it doesn't, you will have pretty much exhausted my 
expertise :-).
