That is only a problem with the rotation which is done by Ghostscript.
Put any kind of text into the paper and everything is fine:

\documentclass[a3]{a0poster}
\usepackage{pstricks}
\begin{document}
\noindent
\begin{pspicture}[showgrid=false](0,0)(\textwidth, \textheight)
\pscircle[fillcolor=red, linecolor=red, fillstyle=solid](5,5){5}
\rput(1,1){X}
\end{pspicture}

\end{document}

However, current version of PSTricks is 2.54a (TeXLive 2014 and
MiKTeX 2.9
