System menu is not accessible in portrait mode

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
1. Press the power button
2. Select "Phone"
(Here, I assume you have set "Display orientation" to "Portrait" in "Turning
control" - basically you just need any portrait mode app)
3. Touch the system menu area (clock, signal strength, battery, presence,
The system menu opens (the one with Battery, Volume, Clock & Alarms, Profile,
Internet connection, Bluetooth and Availability - and possibly more)
This makes keeping the device in portrait mode (e.g. if I'm on the go and
listen to music in portrait mode) less attractive, as some features (e.g.
selecting the internet connection) is not available in portrait mode, so it
requires using the task switcher to go to the Desktop, then interact with the
menu, and then switch back to the application. That's two "portrait mode
switch" animations + lots of touches.
The real name of this menu might not be "System menu" - please change the bug
title if you know the "real" name of this menu. Also, I could not find a
component where this fits, so I'm filing this under "general".
