It is related to the epstopdf script. It tries to be smart when  
deciding the orientation of a pdf when generating it from an eps  
file. A bit too smart for its own good. You can either try to use  
pstopdf (which is Apple's converter), or dig inside the epstopdf  
script and fix it*. Cheating is allowed: adding invisible, unrotated  
text will fool the algorithm, and force the figure to be in the  
orientation you expect (or at least the is what I heard).
