Did you try Acrobat 5 (and maybe 4) for displaying? It sounds silly, but 
the fllowing modes of viewing PDF
differ on Mac OS X:

1 - Cocoa apps on Mac OS X (TeXShop, Preview)
2 - Carbon apps on Mac OS X (Acrobat 5)
3 - Carbon apps (Acrobat 5) on Mac OS 9 or Classic apps (Acrobat 4) 
either on OS 9 or Classic under OS X

The list is in decreasing display niceness and increasing functionality. 
I.e. buttons and links do not work at all in 1 and perfectly in 3. 
Quartz has various bug and incompleteness issues, hence the problems 
with 1. But thinking about it a bit more, I think landscape vs portrait 
is not one of those problems, so it is a tex issue.

(Dynamic presentations, though, only display well with Acrobat 4 under 
Classic or Acrobat 5 under OS 9. To prevent the rebooting, I have 
installed Acrobat 4.05 on my system as well.)
