I'm trying the Handset 1.1 final-demo images on my N900, and I've found
that in both landscape and portrait modes, the X11 root window is 800x480
(that is, always portrait).
However, Qt applications (for example duicontrolpanel) render just fine
in portrait. This means they (or Qt) must be doing some kind of rotation
implemented on the X clients themselves.
To be honest, this comes a bit of a surprise. Is it really expected that
every X11 client application will have to implement their own means for
rotation, or is the plan for rotation to be eventually implemented the
