Description ansbaradigeidfran (reporter) 2012-03-11 00:14:33 UTC
SOFTWARE VERSION: 
CSSU 21.2011.38-1maemo1.2 (CSSU Testing)

EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM: 
(Explain in detail what you do (e.g. tap on OK) and what you see (e.g. message
Connection Failed appears))
1. Open an application which supports auto-rotate, e.g. stock web browser,
Settings, etc (in non-fullscreen mode)
2. Hold device so that the application is in portrait mode
3. Tap the status area, then tap an icon that will open a dialog box. (e.g.
Profile, Availability)

EXPECTED OUTCOME: 
Dialog box opens and device remains in portrait mode, where supported by the
dialog. Dialog responds to changes in the device's orientation.

ACTUAL OUTCOME: 
Screen rotates to landscape prior to displaying the dialog box. The device
remains in landscape mode while the dialog is active. Turning the device
(accelerometer) has no effect. When the dialog is dismissed the application
window will correctly reorient itself.

REPRODUCIBILITY: 
Always

EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED: 
Nothing believed to affect rotation support. Using default CSSU Feature
settings.


OTHER COMMENTS: 
Similar behaviour is found when opening a status area dialog in landscape mode
and then turning the device to attempt to activate portrait mode: the dialog
remains in landscape mode.

Dialog behaviour is correct if there is no active application (status area is
tapped from the desktop, and responds to the device being turned as expected.
