I mean that I was working in portrait mode, then, with X running,
rotated the display to landscape mode, and the displayed pixels did not
change, so that e.g. menus and applications were now sideways.

I then used xrandr on the system with the ATI card; I forget what I did
on the laptop with an nvidia card. The result was a loss of
acceleration.  I did not edit xorg.conf at all.
