We discovered a way to reproduce the “portrait mode glitch” playing with N900; the bug is easy to reproduce and it’s constant, although Nokia has not yet released the Christmas firmware update.
It’s not only the MicroB, but all the application, no matter they are scalable or not. You’ll see though the media player menu is totally messed up and I’m really worried regarding how much work Maemo and Nokia guys will have to dig into this issue.
We apologize for the low quality pictures, but all the camera recorder batteries were absolutely drained at the time… 😦

Edit: Here you can find another workaround by Kieron Peters to reach into portrait, using Braek from extra-testing repository
