# [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?

Alan
