Without a complete test file I cannot see, what code
you are using to set the pdf page attribute /Rotate.

There was a discussion about this topic in de.comp.text.tex
last month:
  thumbpdf uses \global assignment of \pdfpageattr,
  and removes the entry after use, so that the next
  pages are not affected.
As a result I have written packages pdflscape.sty, that
uses this technique for the page attribute /Rotate and
extends the landscape environment. I have put it today
into the incoming directory of CTAN.

Yours sincerely
