Just to check that I understand you correctly: you want to create a pdf 
where some pages are rotated by 90 degrees, that is pagewidth and 
pageheight are interchanged on those pages.

I assume you already use the geometry package (it may insert some extra 
code to keep the pdf-files consistent).

File a bug-report with Apple, I've seen it go wrong with other 
pdf-files and viewers as well.
OTOH, I have a file that is handled correctly in Preview, so it might 
be something that has to be added to the pdfpages package (some 
\pdfliteral or \pdfobj code or so). Preview handles those files in a 
very ugly manner, it displays a huge gray margin to make all pages fit 
inside the window.
