Dear Frank,

Thanks for your fast answer.

I'm considering this bug serious because arabi package is one of most 
important features of texlive-lang-arab. Working on large projects 
could be very difficult with arabtex package. This bug could be 
blocking users from using latex writing Arabic articles. However, if 
you think this has a less priority, please feel free to change it.

Best Regards, Mazen
