In pdfTeX mode?!

It's probably as in Preview and TeXShop: Preview shows automatically  
landscape, TeXShop presses the landscape page in a portrait window.

Have you tried to create landscape oriented documents with Mac OS X  
means and tried to view them in a pre-view before printing? I think  
this will also fail because in System Preferences a particular paper  
size is set – and some tools keep sticking to this mulishly!
