Slightly difficult since its not my work, but assuming that you're 
requesting an example of what is producing the incorrect output...

Salient facts (I hope):

- A simple \includegraphics statement with no rotation commands or anything;

- Only pdfs generated by some sources give the result; most appear as 

- When a "bad" pdf this is echoed to the terminal:

** WARNING ** << /Rotate 90 >> found. (Not supported yet)

As I said, it sounds to me like there's some pdf feature that is 
supported under pdfLaTeX but not under XeLaTeX. Can anyone confirm that, 
and even better suggest any fix? Obviously it would be possible just to 
modify the include statements, but there are a lot of them, and if this 
is fixed in future then everything will end up wrong the other way!
