[pstricks] rotation oddity

The following simple file, when compiled on my system with latex,  
dvips and ps2pdf, exhibits behavior I do not recall seeing previously.


With a rotation angle equal mod 180 to 90, the resulting .pdf is in  
landscape mode. If even slightly different (eg, 90.01), the result is  
as expected---not landscape. I'm using MacTeX 2008---essentially,  
TeXLive 2008. Does this happen on other systems with a recent  
pstricks? Any ideas?
