[pstricks] \uput rotating entire picture

Hi all,

Lately I have been finding that if I use \uput to rotate text several 
times in succession that eventually the entire picture rotates instead 
of the text contained in the \uput command. I haven't been able to work 
out *exactly* what conditions cause it, but it *seems* that it requires 
pst-pdf, pstricks-add, and six or more uses of \uput with a rotation 
parameter specified. In the minimal example below, I get what I expect 
when I use five or fewer \uputs, but when I add a sixth the result is 
rotated 90 degrees clockwise from what I expect.

I use MiKTeX 2.7 with the following sequence of commands to produce the 
*-pics.pdf file:

latex file.tex
dvips -o file-pics.ps file.dvi
ps2pdf file-pics.ps file-pics.pdf

Any ideas?



       \uput[90]{90}(13.2,3.1){\footnotesize Atlanta}%
       \uput[90]{90}(5.1,3.1){\footnotesize Detroit}%
       \uput[90]{90}(16,3.1){\footnotesize Houston}%
       \uput[90]{90}(20.5,3.1){\footnotesize Las Vegas}%
       \uput[90]{90}(9,3.1){\footnotesize San Francisco}%
       \uput[90]{90}(24.9,3.1){\footnotesize Phoenix}%
