Hmmmm... Try running the file through TeXShop's Tex+Ghostscript with  
the Save Postscript File option checked in TeXShop->Preferences- 
 >Engine->TeX + dvips + distiller checked; this will save the ps file  
after the run. I assume the pdf produced will be, incorrectly, rotated.

Then go into Terminal and cd to the directory where the ps file is  
and invoke

ps2pdf13 -dAutoRotatePages=/None file.ps

where file.ps is your generated and saved postscript file. Is this  
file ok?

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
